Smart Structures and Materials
A smart structure is a system that incorporates particular functions of sensing and actuation to perform smart actions in an in genius way. Smart structures offer the ability to match the conditions for more than one optimum state thereby extending functionality.The smart structures based in sophistication are again classified in to different types.Ceramics, polymers ,metals and alloys ,rubber technologies ,fibers ,composite materials, green buildings, bridges and tunnels are some smart structures.Smart structures can help us to control the environment better and to increase the energy efficiency of devices.
