Abstract
 
Description
Adaptive structures have the ability to adapt, evolve or changetheir properties or behaviour in response to the environment aroundthem. The analysis and design of adaptive structures requires ahighly multi-disciplinary approach which includes elements of structures, materials, dynamics, control, design and inspirationtaken from biological systems. Development of adaptive structureshas been taking place in a wide range of industrial applications,but is particularly advanced in the aerospace and space technologysector with morphing wings, deployable space structures;piezoelectric devices and vibration control of tall buildings. Bringing together some of the foremost world experts in adaptivestructures, this unique text:includes discussions of the application of adaptive structuresin the aerospace, military, civil engineering structures,automotive and MEMS.presents the impact of biological inspiration in designingadaptive structures, particularly the use of hierarchy in nature,which typically induces multi-functional behavior.sets the agenda for future research in adaptive structures inone distinctive single volume.Adaptive Structures: Engineering Applications isessential reading for engineers and scientists working in thefields of intelligent materials, structural vibration, control andrelated smart technologies. It will also be of interest to seniorundergraduate and postgraduate research students as well as designengineers working in the aerospace, mechanical, electrical andcivil engineering sectors. - from Amzon
