While the construction of civil engineering is developing towards the direction of higher height, larger span and more complex structure, structural vibration control technology has gradually become one of the most effective technical means to resist strong earthquakes and hurricanes due to its safety, economy and effective characteristics. This summary includes the following three parts: 1. Concept and Principle of Structural Vibration Control. Based on the basic principles of structural dynamics and earthquake engineering, the control mechanism of vibration reduction and base isolated structure is explained. 2. Classification and Basic Performance of Structural Vibration Control. The vibration control technology of building structures is divided into energy dissipation and vibration reduction technology, frequency modulation technology and isolation technology. The basic performance of these technologies is analyzed. 3. Development and Current Situation of Structural Vibration Control. Based on the analysis of current situation, the research of new high-performance damping device, the improvement of current design theory and method of vibration control are considered as the development trends in near future.
