IUTAM Symposium on Mechanics and Reliability of Actuating by W. Yang

By W. Yang

Actuating fabrics carry a promise for fast-spreading purposes in clever buildings and energetic keep watch over structures, and feature attracted broad realization from scientists of either mechanics and fabrics sciences groups. excessive functionality and balance of actuating fabrics and constructions play a decisive position of their successive functions as sensors and actuators in structural regulate and robotics. The advances of actuating fabrics, notwithstanding, lately encountered a critical reliability factor. For a greater figuring out towards this factor, clinical efforts are of paramount value to achieve a deep perception into the complicated deformation and failure behaviors of actuating fabrics. to ascertain the cutting-edge during this topic, the final meeting of IUTAM licensed in August, 2002 at Cambridge collage, united kingdom, an offer to carry an IUTAM symposium to summarize the appropriate study findings. the most issues of the symposium are: (i) the constitutive relatives of actuating fabrics that couple mechanical, electric, thermal and magnetic homes, in addition to comprise part transformation and area change; (ii) the actual mechanisms of deformation, harm, and fatigue crack development of actuating fabrics; (iii) the advance of failure-resilient methods that base at the macro-, meso-, and micro-mechanics analyses; (iv) the research of microstructural evolution, balance of section transformation, and dimension results of ferroelectric ceramics, form reminiscence alloys, actuating polymers, and bio-actuating fabrics. The above difficulties characterize a thrilling problem and shape a study thrust of either fabrics technology and sturdy mechanics. The IUTAM Symposium (GA.
