During the last years, a remarkable progress has been made in the development of new materials. Advanced structured materials including smart and Nano materials open up new engineering possibilities because their specific properties (chemical, mechanical, and physical) that are not found in nature that can be significantly changed by the user in a controlled manner make them appropriate for certain applications. Due to their unique properties, smart and Nano materials have been of interest for uncountable areas of technical application, in various systems and structures including intelligent and adaptive sensing or actuation as well as active control. An understanding of the relationship between the structures and the properties has a crucial importance of practical utilization of these materials.


Therefore, the aim of this special issue is to gain new, unique knowledge about the relationships between structures and physico-mechanical and chemical properties of new materials, including finding ways to structure control, and development of new methods for structural healthy monitoring. Another goal is the gather the main contributions of academics and practitioners in mechanical, aerospace, and civil engineering to provide a common ground for improvements approaches of structural control and healthy monitoring by using this unique properties of smart and Nano materials.


Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas and utilization of the application of smart and Nano materials for structural control and health monitoring:

• Structural health monitoring techniques
