About this book

Composite structures are most efficient in performance and production cost when combined with smart materials making them adaptable to changing operational conditions.
The specific production processes of composites offer the possibility to integrate more functions thus making the structure more valuable. Active functions can be realized by smart materials, e.g. morphing, active vibration control, active structure acoustic control or structure health monitoring. The foundation is a sound understanding of materials, design methods, design principles, production technologies and adaptronics. Along the complete process chain this disciplines together deliver advanced lightweight solutions for applications ranging from mechanical engineering to vehicles, airframe and finally space structures.
This book provides the scientific foundations as well as inspiring new ideas for engineers working in the field of composite lightweight structures.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This edited volume provides a comprehensive overview of the synthesis of active composite structures. … The book would be of interest to practitioners interested in the linkage between material properties, manufacturing, and applications for ‘smart’ and ‘adaptive’ structures.” (IEEE Control Systems Magazine, October, 2013)
