Paper Abstract

The university-based program for fiber optic smart-structures technology development presently discussed gives attention to fiber production and embedding techniques, intelligent fiber-incorporation process monitoring, structural strain/temperature/vibration evaluation, and ultrasonic NDE of crack initiation and propagation in smart materials. Also being actively developed are shape-memory alloys, piezoelectric actuators, and real-time software for control and suppression of structural vibration.
