Summary

Dynamics of Smart Structures is a practical, concise and integrated text which provides an introduction to the fundamental principles. The book has been developed to complement the author's new interdisciplinary programme of study at QMUL that includes courses on emerging and new technologies such as biomimetic robotics, smart composite structures, MEMS and their applications and prosthetic control systems. It includes chapters on smart materials and structures, acoustic waves and transmission lines, dynamics of continuous structures, dynamics and control of plates and plate-like structures, the dynamics of piezoelectric media, thermo-elastic and magneto-elastic media, smart sensors and actuators, fibre-optic transducers, and controller design for flexible structures.Practical text developed in tandem with the author's interdisciplinary educational programme of emerging and new technologies Includes extensive treatment of surface acoustic waves Comprehensively reviews the differing smart materials that are employed in the development of the smart structures Includes coverage of the most recent developments in the field of structural dynamics
