MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

Adaptronic structures and systems can adapt automatically to variable operating and environmental conditions through the use of feedback control. But in contrast to conventional control loops, in which each function is fulfilled by a separate component, adaptronics is characterized by multifunctional components that are preferably integrated into the structure or the system. The goal is a lightweight and simple construction for conserving material and energy resources. The authors of this book have taken on the task of displaying the current state of the art in this highly modern and strongly interdisciplinary field. Selected application examples are also presented and current development trends demonstrated.


Feature:

Covers new materials and system integration with self-sensing capabilities and optimized transfer functions


Describes topics of great current interest


Prepared by international experts in their fields
