Based on our 4SMARTS conference this Special Issue aims to summarize the recent advances in the field of smart structures and systems. It is intended to cover both university research and industrial applications.
The focus will be on the interdisciplinary topic area of active, intelligent and adaptive—in short: smart structures and systems.
Starting with materials, over the virtualization and optimization of components as well as the integration of functions, up to ensuring the reliability of smart structures and systems, this Special Issue covers all relevant fields of technology. In addition to the classic applications of active vibration, sound and shape control, numerous other applications are addressed, including condition and structural health monitoring or autonomous systems.
We would like to invite the whole smart structures and system community to contribute to this Special Issue.
With kind regards,

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Mechanics is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
