Journal of Adaptive Structures

Aims and Scope

Smart and adaptive structures are increasingly becoming a focus of interest for future generations of aircraft. The Journal of Adaptive Structures (JAS) brings together emerging technologies for adaptive smart structures, including advanced materials, smart actuation, sensing and control, to pursue the progressive adoption of the major scientific achievements in this multidisciplinary field on-board of commercial aircraft. The journal covers a wide range of application areas spanning from innovative flexible and topology optimized aircraft wing structures based on complaint and rigid-body mechanisms, to smart actuators, sensors, and control strategies for adaptive noise and vibration control. Focus is also given to reliability and safety-related issues for future aircraft applications.
