An adaptive textile composite, sometimes referred to as a smart material or intelligent material, is a structure tailored to exhibit desirable elastic deformation behaviour not necessarily proportional to the imposed load. An example of such a structure would be a box beam so tailored that an imposed cantilever load results in twisting as well as bending, although no torsional load was imposed, commonly referred to as bend-twist coupling.
