How Smart Materials Can Help Occupants To Live In More Sustainable Buildings
Keywords:Smart materials, Sustainable development, Life cycle perspective
"Smart materials" is a collective definition applying to any technologies and materials that operate with a smart behavior. At this area new knowledge-based tenets and material characteristics can be discovered. Smart materials are widely considered as having vast potential to deliver advantages to many fields of research and implementation and are attracting growing investments from businesses and governments in every place of the world. Simultaneously, it is identified that its usage may cause new challenges in the security, regulation or ethical public domains that will require social discussion. Against this backdrop the question raises in importance on how Smart materials can be improved in a sustainable way over the entire life cycle. This particular issue concentrates on distinctive aspects of sustainable Smart materials development. It reveals the advancement that has been made in this area and emphasizes important achievements and disparities in theoretical as well at applied levels.
