Call for Scope & Topics

Evolution of engineering materials is strongly depending on the growing revolution of complexity in engineering products. New materials being constructed are required to provide specific properties and demonstrate certain functional characteristics by influencing their dimension, chemistry, and structure through various advanced technologies. Therefore, “smartness” of material becomes the topic of interest. Properties of smart materials may vary according to the applied external stimuli. Smart Materials are designed materials which seize one or more properties which can be drastically changed. Designing the combination of several different materials through modeling, and simulation to have a material with desired properties and structure is the concept behind Smart Materials and Structures. They are hybrid materials composed of dissimilar phases which significantly change upon exposure to applied external stimuli such as temperature, stress, magnetic or electric fields. Smart Structures composed of smart materials capable of sensing stimuli, responding to it and reverting to its original state after the stimuli are removed. Smart Materials like piezoelectric materials, electrostrictive materials, shape memory materials, smart fluids, smart hydrogels, Electrochromic materials, phase change materials, nanomaterials, ceramics, smart textiles build the global market. Smart Materials join actuators and sensors that highly incorporate into the structures and have basic functionality and in addition highly integrated control logic, signal conditioning, and signal power amplification electronics.
