Paper Abstract

This paper describes the use of MEMS in smart structures. A smart skin concept is described in which an array of sensors and actuators may be incorporated onto the surface of a structure. A hear flux sensor array concept is described, and shear stress sensors are presented as examples of MEMS devices for structure surfaces. MEMS devices may also be embedded into a structure. For example, pressure and temperature memory sensors are presented for a smart-tire application, in which the MEMS device may be embedded into the tire to provide tire-monitoring capabilities.
