Paper Abstract

In this paper, the results of a feasibility study for developing an efficient and effective design methodology to make systems 'smart by design' is presented. The primary focus is on computer-aided structural design to implement the inter-coupling of modes of vibration and smart devices built in the original design of structures. The conventional add-on elements are replaced by built-in multi tasks components. First, structures are designed so that a major portion of their vibration energy is localized into their non- critical areas and thereby isolate and quieten critical areas. Next, multi tasks smart components are integrated in the most critical locations of the system in order to monitor and maintain the designed vibration characteristics of the system.
