Classification of Smart Materials

Smart materials are designed materials that have one or more properties that can be significantly changed in a controlled fashion by external stimuli, such as stress, temperature, moisture, pH, electric or magnetic fields and depending on the stimuli they are classified in to different types. There are a number of types of smart materials, of which are already common. Some examples are piezoelectric materials, Shape memory alloys and also the smart materials can be classified in to active smart materials and passive smart materials.
