The Smart Machines and Systems 2010 (SMART) technology programme 1997-2000 aimed at supporting the machine and electromechanical industries in incorporating the modern technology into their products and processes. The public research projects in this programme were planned to accumulate the latest research results and transfer them for the benefit of industrial product development. The major research topic in the SMART programme was called Modelling and Simulation of Multitechnological Mechatronic Systems. The behaviour of modern machine systems and subsystems addresses many different types of physical phenomena and their mutual interactions: mechanical behaviour of structures, electromagnetic effects, hydraulics, vibrations and acoustics etc. together with associated control systems and software. The actual research was carried out in three separate projects called Modelling and Simulation of Mechtronic Machine Systems for Product Development and Condition Monitoring Purposes (MASI), Virtual Testing of Hydraulically Driven Machines (HYSI), and Control of Low Frequency Vibration of a Mobile Machine (AKSUS). This publication contains the papers presented at the final seminar of these three research projects, held on November 30th at Otaniemi Espoo.
