      A smart structure is a system containing multifunctional parts that can perform sensing, control, and actuation; it is a primitive analogue of a biological body. Smart materials are used to construct these smart structures, which can perform both sensing and actuation functions. The “I.Q.” of smart materials is measured in terms of their “responsiveness” to environmental Author: Wenwu Cao, Harley H. Cudney, Rainer Waser. Smart Materials offers an exciting opportunity to meet Renowned and Elite Speakers and make new contacts in the field of “Smart Materials and Structures” by providing collaboration and break-out rooms with Coffee and lunch for delegates between the sessions with invaluable networking time for you.

    characteristics of smart structures are a great benefit that utilizes the embedded adaptation of smart materials like shape memory alloys. By changing their properties, smart materials can detect faults and cracks and therefore are useful as a diagnostic tool. This characteristic can be utilized to activate the smart material embedded in theFile Size: KB. Smart Materials and Structures (SMS) is a multi-disciplinary engineering journal that explores the creation and utilization of novel forms of transduction. It is a leading journal in the area of smart materials and structures, publishing the most important results from different regions of the world, largely from Asia, Europe and North America.

      This book extends from the fundamentals to the state-of-the-art. It covers the elements of smart civil structures, their integration, and their functions. The elements consist of smart materials, sensors, control devices, signal processors, and communication by: 5. The book provides the fundamentals of smart materials and structures, including the background, application, and governing equations. In particular, functionally-graded smart structures made of piezoelectric, piezomagnetic, and magnetoelectroelastic materials are introduced as they represent the recent development in the industry.

It informs readers of the technical challenges to the commercialisation of products incorporating these material technologies. Smart structures or smart materials systems are those, which incorporate actuators and sensors that integrate into the structures and have structural functionality, as well as highly integrated.

This book introduces the enabling concepts that make up the so-called smart structure and presents a number of brief case studies to illustrate the applications of these concepts. Bringing together technologies system concepts, case studies and applications, this volume examines the domains of the individual technologies and defines the challenges faced by the s: 1.

A comprehensive introduction to the embryonic field of smart materials and structures, this text also presents a review of the sub-disciplines of the field, focusing on electro-rheological fluids, piezo-electric materials, shape-memory materials and fibre-optics in particular.
