Course Info
Over the last 10-15 years there has been tremendous interest in the use of smart materials as elements of “adaptive” structures. This class of materials includes, among others, piezoelectric materials, shape memory alloys, and electro- and magneto-rheological fluids. The course covers the fundamental behaviour of these materials, their constitutive modelling, develops models for the introduction of smart materials as elements of adaptive structures (in particular for structural vibration reduction, damping augmentation, and shape control or morphing applications), addresses issues such as sizing and optimal placement of actuators and sensors in structures, and examines different control strategies and the resulting system behaviour. Several smart materials application case studies are also presented.
