Paper Abstract

Over the past decade, tremendous advancements have been made inthe development of structural control paradigms and in the necessary supportingtechnologies. The fundamental paradigm that has driven these advancements is thedesire to create "biologically inspired", controllable structures. In search of thesestructures with adaptive and lifelike features, modern-day alchemists have developedseveral approaches, based on natural systems, to incorporate adaptability intostructures. This paper will describe four specific examples of adaptive behavior andthe applications which might benefit from such lifelike functions.
