Description/Abstract

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.
