Abstract: Today, there are more than 30 buildings with response control systems. The system is defined as one that suppresses or controls the response to the vibrational motion input of the buildings, the structural elements, and the accommodations inside the buildings, by installing a certain system or device. According to this definition, the response control system is a method which controls all kinds of vibration caused by wind, traffic and machinery loads, and so on. This report presents the outline of the buildings with response control systems in Japan, and introduces the details of systems for earthquakes.
