Abstract: ▪ The terms smart structures, intelligent structures, adaptive structures all belong to the same field, namely that of smart technologies applied to the control of structural response. All these terms refer to the integration of actuators, sensors in structural components, together with some kind of control unit or enhanced signal processing, with a material or structural component. The goal of this integration is the creation of a mechanical system having optimized structural performance under any loading condition, but without adding too much mass or consuming too much power (Spina, 2006).
