Paper Abstract

Light weight structures - e.g. carbon fiber reinforced aeroplane parts or glass fiber reinforced robot arms - feature specific microscopic material structures resulting in the well known favorable mechanical properties.The integration of conventional actuators/sensors can adversely affect the mechanical properties. On the contrary, the actuators/sensors have to have a particularly small volume and stiffness - combined with a sufficient piezo electric efficiency.
