Active materials are rapidly expanding their variety as well as applications due to their promising high–tech potential. Composite structures of active materials enable researchers to develop mechatronic systems and devices with inherent intelligence features and increased level of integration. A composite structure consisting of piezoactive material and electrorheological fluid is proposed, and its possibilities in developing self-adjusting and adaptive systems are discussed
