Architectural technology which is one of the major sectors of civil engineering, which includes advanced innovations in structural engineering, which is very much concerned about the structures or building. In the construction industry, developmental projects usually require the knowledge and understanding of civil engineering and architecture. These are important disciplines that deal with the process of creating structures, such as buildings, airports, churches, houses etc. Both Civil Engineering and Architecture are involved in planning and designing structures. However, architecture focuses more on the spatial functionality and aesthetics of the developmental work and is more concerned with the artistry, look, feel and functionality of the design, while Civil Engineering concentrates on the structural elements of the design, making certain that the structure can endure normal and extreme conditions.

SMAs are metallic alloys with the ability to return to a predetermined shape when heated. After an apparent plastic deformation, the SMAs undergo a thermo-elastic change in crystal structure when heated above its transformation temperature range, resulting in a recovery of the deformation. This effect, known as Shape Memory Effect, is used in movement or force generation applications, such as actuators development.

Shape Memory polymers are the compound plastics polymers that have a special chemical structure. The glass transition temperature (Tg) plays a vital role in Shape Memory Polymers. Above the Tg, these Shape Memory polymers become rubber elastic and flexible. These Materials can solve engineering problems with unachievable effectiveness.

The force of attraction acting from a distance is known as Magnetism. Magnetic field is produced by the movement of electrically charged particles. North and south poles are two poles in a magnet. Opposite poles of two magnets will attract each other and like poles will repel each other. In magnets and electric currents, magnetism symbolizes to the attraction of iron and other metals. In everyday life paramagnetic, diamagnetic, and antiferromagnetic materials are often described as non-magnetic as the force of a magnet on is usually too weak to be felt and can be detected only by laboratory instruments.

The origin of magnetism lies in the orbital and spin motions of electrons and how the electrons interact with one another. The magnetic behavior of materials can be categorized into the following groups:

Diamagnetism is an essential property of all matter, though it is usually very weak. It is due to the non-cooperative conduct of orbiting electrons when exposed to an applied magnetic field. Diamagnetic substances are composed of atoms which have no remaining magnetic moments (ie., all the orbital shells are filled and there are no unpaired electrons). But, when exposed to a field, a negative magnetization is formed and therefore the susceptibility is negative.

Paramagnetism materials, some of the irons or atoms in the material have a net magnetic moment due to unpaired electrons in incompletely filled orbitals. One of the significant atoms with unpaired electrons is iron. However, distinct magnetic moments do not interrelate magnetically, and like diamagnetism, the magnetization is zero when field is detached. In the existence of a field, there is now a partial configuration of the atomic magnetic moments in the direction of the field, resultant in a net positive magnetization and positive susceptibility.

Ferromagnetism is the simple mechanism by which some materials form permanent magnets, are attracted to magnets. In physics, distinct types of magnetism are distinguished. Ferromagnetism is the strongest type it is the only one that naturally creates forces strong enough to be felt, and in charge of the common phenomena of magnetism in magnets that happens in everyday life. In ionic compounds, such as oxides, additional complex forms of magnetic ordering can happen as an outcome of the crystal arrangement. One kind of magnetic ordering is called ferrimagnetism. Materials which are not attracted to the magnet are called non-magnetic materials

Materials that display antiferromagnetism, the magnetic moments of atoms, commonly related to the spins of electrons, align in a systematic pattern with neighboring spins directing in opposite directions. This is, like ferromagnetism and ferrimagnetism, an appearance of ordered magnetism. Normally, the antiferromagnetic order may exist at appropriately low temperatures, disappearing at and above a certain temperature, the Neel temperature Above the Neel temperature, the material is naturally paramagnetic.

Materials processing involves a complex series of chemical, thermal, and physical processes that prepare a starting material, create a shape, retain that shape, and refine the structure and shape. The goal of materials processing is to develop the structural features (e.g., crystal structure, microstructure, size, and shape) needed for the product to perform well in its intended application. Materials processing is central to the field of materials science and engineering and is a vital step in manufacturing.

The conversion of the starting material to the final product occurs in three steps: preparation of the starting material, processing operation, and post-processing operation(s). The processing operations can be divided into five categories based on the state of matter most important to the process: melt, solid, powder, dispersion or solution, and vapor. Metals, ceramics, and polymers are formed by operations in each of the categories so that common scientific and engineering principles can be understood and applied to various types of materials.

Expertise in materials science goes well beyond understanding the properties of materials and how those properties can be applied. Materials scientists must also be adept at developing cost-effective techniques to synthesize, process and fabricate advanced materials that can meet the demands of a rapidly changing commercial marketplace.

Sensors are materials that respond to a physical stimulus, such as a change in temperature, pressure, or illumination, and transmit a resulting signal for monitoring or operating a control. Actuators are materials that respond to a stimulus in the form of a mechanical property change such as a dimensional or a viscosity change. A transducer is a device that converts variations physical parameters into an electrical signal, or vice versa. These are key elements of smart controlling systems and structures.

The essence of Materials Chemistry can be observed in various fields i.e., organic, inorganic, analytical, physical, organometallic, cosmetic, petro and forensic studies. Organic chemistry provides organic polymers for use in structures, films, fibres, coatings, and so on. It provides materials with complex functionality, a bridge between materials science and medicine and provides a sophisticated synthetic entry into nanomaterial. Inorganic chemistry deals with the structure, properties, and reactions of molecules that do not contain carbon, such as metals. It helps us to understand the behaviour and the characteristics of inorganic materials which can be altered, separated, or used in products, such as ceramics and superconductors. Analytical chemistry determines the structure, composition, and nature of substances, by identifying and analyzing their various elements or compounds. It also gives idea about relationships and interactions between the parts of compounds. It has a wide range of applications, like food safety, Nano biopharmaceuticals, and pollution control. The analytical role of materials chemistry includes the materials science lab equipment associated with materials science experiments. The basic characteristics of how matter behaves on a molecular and atomic level and how chemical reactions occur are physical chemistry. Based on the inferences, new theories are developed, such as how complex structures are formed and develop potential uses for new materials correlating materials chemistry. Study of chemical compounds containing at least one bond between a carbon atom of an organic compound and a metal, including alkaline, alkaline earth, transition metal, and other cases is Organometallic chemistry. Materials that work physiologically within the skin or aid in protecting the skin from insult form Cosmetic chemistry. Petro chemistry deals with the transformation of crude oil (petroleum) and natural gas into useful products or raw materials. Forensic chemistry is the application of chemistry and its subfield, forensic toxicology, in a legal setting. Materials science and pharmaceutical chemistry are disciplines at the intersection of chemistry, especially synthetic organic chemistry, and pharmacology and various other biological specialties, where they are involved with design, electrochemical synthesis and development for market of pharmaceutical agents, or bio-active molecules (drugs). These chemical synthetic methods that make it possible to prepare a large number (tens to thousands or even millions) of compounds in a single process come under the concept of Combinatorial chemistry.

Common engineering materials reach in many applications their limits and new developments are required to fulfil increasing demands on engineering materials. The performance of materials can be increased by combining different materials to achieve better properties than a single constituent or by shaping the material or constituents in a specific structure. The interaction between material and structure may arise on different length scales, such as micro-, meso- or macroscale, and offers possible applications in quite diverse fields.

Ceramics are an incredibly diverse family of materials whose members span traditional ceramics (such as pottery and refractories) to the modern day engineering ceramics (such as alumina and silicon nitride) found in electronic devices, aerospace components and cutting tools. Whilst the most extravagant claims of the 1980s in favour of advanced ceramic materials (such as the all ceramic engine) have largely proved inaccurate, it is true to say that ceramics have established themselves as key engineering materials.

When used in conjunction with other materials, usually metals, they provide added functionality to components thereby improving application performance, once the appropriate joint design and technology have been identified. Ceramics are used as the reinforcement of composite systems such as GRP (glass reinforced plastics) and metal matrix composites such as alumina reinforced aluminium (Al/Al 2O 3). Advanced ceramic materials are also used as the matrix materials in composites. Currently the most widely available materials are based on SiC and carbon.

Engineering ceramics are used to fabricate components for applications in many industrial sectors, including ceramic substrates for electronic devices, turbocharger rotors , and tappet heads for use in automotive engines. Other examples of where advanced ceramics are used include oil-free bearings in food processing equipment, aerospace turbine blades, nuclear fuel rods, lightweight armour, cutting tools, abrasives, thermal barriers and furnace/kiln furniture.

There are many chances for Smart Materials and structures in the manmade world. Smart Materials can provide the maintenance engineers a clear report on the performance history of the material and the location of defects as well. These materials can counteract to dangerous conditions such as excess vibrations and affect the self-repair. Smart materials will have any vast area of applications that help to achieve technological objectives. This results in smart materials and structures that will be helpful in solving engineering problems with hitherto unachievable efficiency and provide the opportunity for creating a new product.
