Paper Abstract

The paper presents a short overview of the 1997 Smart Structures and Integrated Systems Conference program from the perspective of an overview of the technologies contributing to this field, their interrelationships, and selected key areas in which development is needed to further their application. Four specific technology areas are addressed; integrated systems applications, vibration and acoustic control, actuation technologies for smart structures, and health monitoring, damage detection and damage mitigation. The states of the art in each of these four areas, as exemplified by contributions to this conference, are examined and evaluated with respect to technical maturity and application challenges. Conclusions are drawn from this examination which indicate several, interrelated technical areas in which future concentration of study and development would significantly benefit the evolution of smart structures and other integrated smart systems.
