Active Adaptive Concrete Structures

Over the last decades there has been an excessive use of material, with the construction industry as the largest consumer. An approach to economize material is implementing active control of structures. This approach is based on the principle of removing material and compensating with an adaptive system over time. Active control is applied on concrete structures, since this material is the most used building material. During this colloquium, an approach for designing active adaptive concrete structures will be presented.
