Application of Intelligent Materials in Vibration Control and Energy Harvesting

Call for Papers

The special issue approaches the application of intelligent materials such as magnetorheological (MR) fluids or electrorheological (ER) fluids, piezoelectric materials (PZT), and shape memory alloys (SMA), considering their applications in control of vibration and/or energy harvesting. The contributions should consider aspects such as applications of vibration control by means of passive, semiactive, and active control considering intelligent materials as sensors or actuators and the conversion of vibrations into electric energy. Applications in mechanics, electrics, electromechanics, mechatronics, and other areas that consider intelligent materials in vibration control and energy harvesting are welcome.

The special edition will assemble the contributions of researchers in different topics of application of intelligent materials, whose expected roles are to describe original theoretical researches, as well as new experimental results.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Intelligent materials applied in vibration control or energy harvesting for rotational systems
  • Intelligent materials applied in vibration control or energy harvesting for vehicular systems
  • Intelligent materials applied in vibration control for robotic manipulators
  • Intelligent materials applied in vibration control or energy harvesting for aerospace systems
  • Intelligent materials applied in vibration control or energy harvesting for structures
  • Intelligent materials applied in vibration control or energy harvesting for nonideal systems
  • Intelligent materials applied in vibration control for nonlinear systems with chaotic behavior
  • Applications of intelligent materials as vibration sensors
