    • Highly application-oriented approach to the field of intelligent materials and structures.
    • Each chapter contains numerous figures and equations illustrating and explaining the topic.

    Aims and Scope

    Intelligent Materials and Structures provides exceptional insights into designing intelligent materials and structures for special applications in engineering. The author introduces the fundamental materials science involved in research endeavors and simultaneously reviews the current state-of-the-art of intelligent materials and structures.
    Separate chapters are devoted to the thorough examination of theory and application of laminated composite materials, Piezoelectricity, Shape Memory Alloys, Electro- and Magnetorheological fluids as well as Magneto- and Electrostrictive materials. Each chapter contains numerous equations and figures describing theories, models and behavior of the intelligent material discussed.
    Special attention is paid to applications of intelligent materials to various structures in the aerospace and medical sector, piezoelectric motors as well as piezoelectric and electromagnetic energy harvesting.

    "In conclusion, many students and researchers from microengineering to materials sciences may find some or all sections of the book useful; it contains many details, particularly on continuum models of mechanical properties of materials and their coupling to external stimuli. An extensive list of relevant literature is provided for both the experts and students who need to orient themselves in depth in the various fields. In particular, piezoelectric materials and their applications receive ample coverage."
