Abstract
Over the past decade, a new interdisciplinary field of research called ‘‘smart structures’’ has emerged. A smart structure can be generally described as a nonbiological structure that has a definite designed-in purpose and the ‘‘will’’ and means to actively try to achieve that purpose. In some sense, a smart structure would be a nonbiological analog of a living structure such as a tree.
