ÜV4 - Sensors for Adaptronic Applications

Th. Bein, D. Mayer & H. Hanselka
Adaptive structural systems (adaptronics) enable new and innovative approaches to optimise engineered structures with increased functionality in all fields of mechanical engineering. Basically, an increased functionality can be achieved by embedding sensors and actuators in load-carrying structures combined with advanced control strategies. Over the last decades, adaptronics are mostly applied to noise and vibration control in high-cost markets whereas the research was focussing on the actuator design, control concepts and system integration. Nowadays a research...
