Materials are evolving today at a rate faster than any other time in the history of civilization. The emergence of new and improved materials, their processing and the development of a newer area of specialization known as Materials Design are stimulating innovation in all the walks of life making new designs for efficient systems and structures. Structural health monitoring (SHM) refers to the process of implementing a damage detection and characterization strategy for engineering structures. The smart materials possess the ability to change their physical properties in a specific manner in response to specific stimulus input on real time basis. They are light in weight, consume less power and have better reliability. In addition, they can be embedded in the structures without affecting the structural properties. With such features incorporated in a structure by embedding functional materials, it is feasible to achieve technological advances such as vibration and noise reduction, shape control with high pointing accuracy, damage detection, damage mitigation etc.
