This investigation discusses some proposed techniques to attenuate rotary wing vibration using smart materials. Advantages and disadvantages of these solutions are analysed in greater detail. Numerical results from feasibility studies are summarised to present the accomplishments already achieved and the goals to be pursued in the near future to develop the next generation of the so-called 'smart rotors'.
