Paper Abstract

The smart structures concept, in which the structure is instrumented with a network of sensors and computers to monitor the flight loads environment and structural integrity, and initiate corrective actions, will eventually replace the current individual aircraft tracking system. Herein, two smart structures concepts are discussed in detail and the required research and development indicated.
