Intelligent Vibration Control of Structures against Earthquakes Using Hybrid Damper


In this paper the act of hybrid mass dampers (ATMDs) for the reduction of the buffeting response of tall buildings is investigated. A closed-loop feedback control algorithm is proposed for the control of a building as a SDOF system using an ATMD and a linear quadratic regulator (LQR) control law is utilized. The results are compared to those obtained with a closed form design procedure from the literature. A flexible damper proves to be more effective, but at the cost of actuating forces required.
