College of Aeronautics (WAERO)
Smart Materials for Aerospace Applications
This course covers the general area of smart materials used for aerospace structures. Current research in material development, diverse applications, design, modeling, and control are introduced to learn their potentials and challenges as smart actuators and sensors. Various types of smart materials are discussed including piezoelectric, active fiber composites, electrostrictive, magnetostrictive, electroactive polymers, shape memory alloys, electro and magnetorheological fluids, and optical fibers.

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
