Development in the area of materials research aims at incorporating intelligence into engineering materials, enabling them to sense the external stimuli and alter their own properties to adapt to the changes in the environment. This paper discusses possible forms of intelligence that may be incorporated in these materials. Three basic mechanisms of intelligent materials, namely, the sensor, processor and actuator functions, are described. Implementation of these in the microstructure of various
more &raquo; ... materials, as well as associated algorithms and techniques are illustrated. Different models, control algorithms and analyses developed by various researchers are reviewed and their potential applications in engineering materials are presented.
