Sample text

Calcification converts the resulting fibro cartilage into fibrous bone and, eventually lamellar bone. The corresponding process developed in thermosetting composites is illustrated in Fig. 8b: when the crack propagating through the polymer encounters a microcapsule containing the healing agent, a self-repair process is initiated. The healing agent inside the capsule spreads out to fill the crack and becomes polymerized in contact with the catalyst agents dispersed throughout the polymeric matrix. 4 Future Adaptronic Structures 25 Fig.

The formation of domain patterns during a phase transition from a high symmetry phase to a low symmetry phase is a reflection of the system trying to recover those lost symmetries. The number of domain states or variants in the low temperature phase is equal to the ratio of the number of operations in the high and low symmetry groups. There are 230 space groups and 32 point groups describing the symmetry operations allowed in crystal structures [8]. The point groups refer to those symmetry operations without translation operations, including rotation, mirror reflection and inversion.

It is very important to understand the fundamental principles that make these materials functional, which can help us to use them properly and to inspire us to create better multifunctional materials based on the same physical principles. There are many natural functional materials that have been widely used in our daily life. Many composite materials with enhanced functional properties have also been created so that the amount of functional material categories is growing fast. As most of the control systems are driven electronically, ferroelectric materials are naturally one of the best functional materials for adaptronics applications.
