Active control of vibrations of a tall structure excited by external forces
Jamil, M., Sharkh, S.M., Nasir Javid, M. and Nagendra, V.V. (2009) Active control of vibrations of a tall structure excited by external forces. In, 6th International Bhurban Conference on Applied Sciences and Technology (IBCAST), Islamabad, Pakistan, 05 - 08 Jan 2009.
This paper is concerned with active control of vibrations of tall structures subjected to strong wind or earth quake shocks using an active mass damper (AMD). A linear black box model of the systems is obtained from an experimental scale model of the structure. Two alternative control systems, and associated observers are designed and their performance assessed theoretically and experimentally.
