There are lots of great material on Smart Materials and Structures subject in the internet, buts its always a challenge to figure out a ready list of top books on Smart Materials and Structures that one can refer to immediately. Even though online materials are good, but nothing can beat the depth of coverage that a book can offer. Hence, we researched the list of Smart Materials and Structures books which are used by students worldwide and came up with top 10 Book Recommendations on Smart Materials and Structures subject. These books can be used as a great starting point for anyone studying Smart Materials and Structures and can also be used as a ready reference for Under-Graduate and Post-Graduate programs.
Most of these Smart Materials and Structures books are also in the best-seller lists in Amazon website. We have added a brief description of these best books and have also included direct links to Amazon site (as affiliate). This allows anyone to directly visit the site and order printed copies of these best books.
Here is the full list of best reference books on Smart Materials and Structures.
|1. “Smart Structures, Analysis and Design” by A.V. Srinivasan and D. M. McFarland
Book Review: This book provides the necessary information that is needed for the design and analysis of smart devices and structures. The book contains chapters on piezoelectric crystals, shape memory alloys, vibration absorbers, fiber optics and mistuning. The book also contains a chapter on biometrics and design strategies that are used at microstructural level. This book is useful for both students and engineers. This book is useful for people dealing with bio engineering, aerospace and automotive engineering.
|2. ” Smart Materials and Structures” by M. V. Gandhi and B. D. Thompson
Book Review: This book gives introduction to smart materials and smart structures in the field of embryology. The book also demonstrates the challenges that occur in the commercialization of products. The book also demonstrates the behavior of the structures, the cost at which they should be designed and their production for real life applications in the field of vibrant control, shape morphing, health monitoring and energy transduction.
|3. “Smart Structures: Physical Behavior, Mathematical Modeling and Applications” by P. Gaudenzi
Book Review: This book presents the basic information about the smart structures by taking into consideration three points and they are physical, mathematical and engineering. The book also provides explanation about the physics that happens in active materials and also explains the mathematical behavior as well as tools that are needed for numerical simulation.
|4. “Dynamics of Smart Structures” by R. Vepa
Book Review: This book is an integrated textbook that provides introduction to the basic principles of smart structures dynamics. Smart structure dynamics is an independent area which has eveolved rapidly in the last few years. The book demonstrates the concepts, techniques and systems that are related to the dynamics and control of smart structures. The book also demonstrates different smart materials that are used in the development of smart structures and also demonstrates the latest developments that are made in the field of structural dynamics.
