Two key words for mechanical engineering in the future are Micro and Intelligence. Materials and structures, which have self-sensing diagnosis and actuating system, called intelligent or smart, are of growing importance in advanced technology. The IUTAM symposium on Dynamics of Advanced Materials and Smart Structures aimed at a fusion of materials and structures toward their intelligence. This book represents the symposium highlights, which consist of 45 papers presented by distinguished researchers from 17 countries. The papers are ranging from the materials science for sensor and actuator, such as active fluid, polymer, piezoelectric, shape memory and functionally graded materials, to structural dynamics and shape control, but also to bio-structures and mathematical modelling for highly coupled phenomena.
