Adaptive structures are autonomous structural systems with integrated multifunctional smart materials as actuators and sensors, connected by a control system, to facilitate adaptation to changing environmental conditions. This collection of 48 papers is based on a Euromech 373 colloquium on the subject held in Magdeburg in March 1998. The main topics are adaptive structures technology, adaptive material systems and actuators, damage detection in smart material, finite elements, multilayered structures and composites, modeling and optimization, control, neural networks and shape detection, and adaptive structural systems. Applications in satellites, wind energy converters, and smart antenna reflectors round out the volume. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR ( more
