Examples of Future Potential Smart Civil Structures
The paper starts reviewing the problems that the structural engineer of tomorrow will have to solve by taking advantage of the smart technologies. As a second aspect, the paper will summarize the smart technologies already available or that will most likely become available in the near future, in order to individuate the opportunities that these technologies will offer for the conception of innovative smart civil structures. Some examples of future smart civil structures that can be based on such technologies are finally presented.
