An investigation on antiseismic base-isolation and control
Earthquake protection of buildings is achieved by means of isolation and control at the base of the structure. The desired control objective is to keep the building arbitrarily close to its initial, undisturbed configuration. The controllers developed require a control force on the first floor.
