Abstract

The research area of “Smart Materials and Structures” represents one of the blossoming stars in multi/cross-disciplinary applied and fundamental research. Activities abound both in the fundamental area of investigation into new “smart or intelligent” materials as well as the application of existing materials into structural elements and systems.
