Paper Abstract

Buckling frequently governs the strength of weight sensitive aerospace structures. Conventional designs use adequate mass of material located appropriately to obtain adequate buckling strength. The smart control and material technologies have created a new paradigm in design. In this smart structures, energy to control their behavior and appropriate control strategies are used to design against buckling failure. In this paper the state-of-the-art of smart control of buckling is reviewed and finite element analysis results of an approach to control buckling of struts under compression is discussed.
