Paper Abstract

The topic of smart structure and materials is extremely broad and so encompasses an immense amount of activity. This paper presents a very restricted snapshot of this activity and highlights ongoing work in materials, components technology, software support and applications. The highlights are selected primarily on the basis of the author's personal interests and seek to convey at least some of the exciting potential offered by the engineering disciplines encompassed within the smart structures concept. Perhaps the theme which emerges is that the applications which have already made their mark have yet to fully exploit the potential offered by the contributing technologies. There is much more to come.
