The 9th ECCOMAS Thematic Conference on Smart Structures and Materials (SMART 2019) was organized in Paris, at the Arts et Métiers – Ensam (Paris Campus). This conference series has started in 2003 and progressed successfully over the years. Its previous editions were held in Poland (2003, 2007), Portugal (2005, 2009, 2015), Germany (2011), Italy (2013) and Spain (2017). SMART 2019 aims at providing a comprehensive forum for discussing current state of the art in the field of smart structures and materials as well as at developing future ideas on a multidisciplinary level.

General Topics

    • Smart structures (fundamentals, concepts, design, modelling, simulation, testing, analysis, etc.)

    • Smart materials (piezoelectric, shape memory, magneto/electro-rheological, magneto/electro-strictive, nano-reinforced, biomimetic, optic, characterization, homogenization, etc.)

    • Smart systems (micro, nano, mechatronic, robotic, automation, integration, packaging, etc.)

    • Structural control (active/semi-active/hybrid, sensors/actuators, noise, damping, morphing, etc.)

    • Health monitoring (sensor/actuator networks, wireless communication, energy harvesting, etc.)

    • Manufacturing technology (bonding, embedding, connection, additive, printing, painting, etc.)

    • Engineering Applications (mechanical, aeronautic, automotive, civil, bio-mechanics/medical, etc.)

A VIPER Mini-Symposium was organized during the conference, entitled: “MS11 : Smart Design of Periodic Structures”

Organizers : Christophe Droz & Olivier Bareille (Ecole Centrale de Lyon, France), Wim Desmet & Elke Deckers (KU Leuven, Belgium), Sergio de Rosa (University of Naples Federico II, Italy)

Improving the broadband vibroacoustic signatures and performances of lightweight structures is a crucial concern in modern transportation industry. H2020-VIPER (Vibroacoustics of Periodic Media) is a European Joint Doctorate network aimed at developing a new generation of vibroacoustic models, reduced multi-scale methods, relevant indicators and innovative materials and concepts, able to address the growing complexity of periodic waveguides and industrially-relevant structural metamaterials. This mini-symposium welcomes the contributions dedicated to:

  • Wave-based methods for periodic and multi-scale structures
  • Vibroacoustic modelling based on unit-cell methods
  • New periodic concepts for noise and vibration control
  • Acoustic metamaterials, Auxetic structures and their manufacturing
