Adaptronics and Smart Structures
For some time, engineers and scientists have been using the nature as an inspiration for their design of advanced robotics and mechanical systems. Today, nature has also become the inspiration for an entire new class of material systems -the adaptronic structures . Using biological analogies and nature's ability to adapt a material's structure, morphology, shape, and properties to accommodate its changing environment and its aging process, present day engineers and scientists are designingdoi:10.1007/978-3-662-03819-2_3 fatcat:orzln4gnszfobccnavhqyqesw4
