Smart material using fiber Bragg grating transducers and shape memory alloy actuators

Abstract: A structure based on a smart material and a PID control loop is presented in this paper. A glass fiber reinforced plastic material is instrumented with Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBG) and Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) actuators. The smart material and the smart structure are both successfully checked by being subjected to different operational conditions at the laboratory. Very good responses are obtained under both slow and quicker varying conditions.
