Adaptive structures - An overview Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper gives an overview of research in the area of adaptive structures. A general description of smart material systems is given. Particular focus is given to the following fields of application: semi-passive concepts, energy harvesting, semi-active concepts, active vibration control, and active structural acoustic control. The use of adaptive structures in structural health monitoring applications and for shape adaptation is also considered.
