Part of the Springer Tracts in Civil Engineering book series (SPRTRCIENG)


The basic principles of passive control, active control, semi-active control, intelligent control and hybrid control are introduced respectively in this chapter. For the passive control, motion equation of SDOF system, commonly used passive energy dissipation dampers and motion equation of passive vibration absorbing structural system are focally introduced. For the active and semi-active control, commonly used active and semi-active control strategies, motion equations of active and semi-active vibration absorbing system, structural state equation, structural active control algorithm and semi-active control algorithm are introduced systematically.
