 About the Book 

Theory of Adaptive Structures furnishes the basic theory essential for actively controlling the behavior of engineered products. The text examines adaptive structures whose response to excitations can be controlled in real time by on-board micro-processors that receive information from sensors and insert internal deformations through appropriately placed actuators - similar to an athlete controlling movements by flexing muscles in response to sensory input to the brain. Topics include the design and control of discrete parameter adaptive structures, both in static and dynamic environments, and an introduction to distributed parameter adaptive structures.
