Paper Abstract

This paper presents an overview on the smart structures research and development activities in Japan which were reported after 1992 to some time in 1996, including a brief description of the recent situation in the smart structures research circle. Mention will be made of investigations on the vibration, shape and motion controls of space structures, vibration suppression of substructural elements and smart reinforced composites, shape memory alloys, design approaches, etc., focussing on their new aspects and ideas.
