A comprehensive introduction to the analysis and design of smart material systems. Smart materials have the inherent ability to sense and react to changes in the environment. Their capabilities are increasingly being used by engineers designing intelligent systems Cited by: Get this from a library! Materials and devices for smart systems II: symposium held November December 1, , Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.. [Yasubumi Furuya; Materials Research Society. . Smart Materials are ones that can respond to environmental stimuli by exhibiting changes in properties (mechanical or physical), structure, composition or function. Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).The growing interest in their development is driven by emerging applications and by the integration of smart materials into industrial systems . An extensive discussion of structural models based on linear and nonlinear constitutive models is included, as is a chapter on numerical techniques for approximating solutions to the structural systems. The author also provides a synergistic treatment of material characterization, including significant discussion of the physics underlying nonlinear behavior, the development of nonlinear constitutive relations, the development of system models .

This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the embryonic field of smart materials and structures, and also presents a state-of-the-art review of the sub-disciplines of the field. It informs readers of the technical challenges to the commercialisation of products incorporating these material 5/5(1).   The book provides a pedagogical approach that emphasizes the physical processes of active materials and the design and control of engineering systems. It will also be a reference text for practicing engineers who might understand the basic principles of active materials .

Proceedings of the Symposium on Materials for Smart Systems II, held in conjunction with the Materials Research Society Fall Meeting, , Boston. Description: xv, pages: illustrations ; 24 cm. Series Title: Materials Research Society symposia proceedings, v. Other Titles: Materials for smart systems 2 Materials for smart systems . A single source on numerous aspects of intelligent materials Smart Materials focuses on many types of novel materials, including ceramics, hybrid composites, shape memory alloys, chitosan-based 5/5(1). Abstract. This chapter first introduces the basic definitions and concepts related to smart materials and structures. Then, the underlying physical principles and main operational features of some of the smart materials . Smart materials, called also intelligent or responsive 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, moisture, electric or magnetic fields, light, temperature, pH, or chemical materials .
