Description / Abstract:

Smart materials and structures is an area of technology which has been around for approximately 30 years or more where materials and structures are augmented by sensing and actuation functionality, and those functions are combined with control elements, all becoming an integral part of the materials and structures considered. This book collects selected Plenary Lectures and Key-Note Lectures from the VI Eccomas Thematic Conference on Smart Structures and Materials (SMART13), June 24-26, 2013, Torino, Italy.

Review from Book News Inc.: The conference deals with materials and structures that are augmented with sensing and actuation capabilities and control elements. The volume presents 14 selected plenary lectures and key-note lectures on such aspects as recent developments in computational methods for microsystems, a design for piezoelectric sensors for structural and health monitoring based on the principle of virtual work, different perspectives on applying the continuous dynamic monitoring of bridges, controlling wall turbulence by spinning discs, and smart nano-systems and inflammatory reactions.
