This paper describes how Strategically Tuned Absolutely Resilient Structures (STARS) are being designed for energy transfer and morphing applications based on the strength, stiffness, and the position of the component materials in the composite section. The discussion ranges from on-line health monitoring and smart diagnostics/prognostics strategies developed to improve the readiness and performance of STARS to integrated sensors and structural information systems designed to keep the stress in…

Characterization of Adaptive Reinforced Concrete Structures

Research, development, and design considerations used to produce a Structural Information System capable of characterizing the behavior of an adaptive reinforced concrete structure designed to withstand reverse loadings indicate that splices in the tendons and slippage between the tendon and the concrete help to prevent sudden failure and allow the structure to withstand relatively high service loads despite appreciable deformation.
