Smart structures

A smart structure is a versatile system and combination of sensing, controlling, and actuation steps that functions similarly to an elemental analogue of the human body. Each smart material serves as a unit cell for smart structures, with each cell performing sensing and actuation functions. It is capable of checking for multiple optimal conditions and displaying its function. Smart structures are resistant to natural disasters and meet all technological demands.
