Part of: Dynamic Response of Structures


Several methods have been offered to control a structure. These methods are the optimal control, the pole assignment, the independent modal space control, and the direct velocity feedback. This paper shows the advantages and disadvantages of each method and recommends the suitable method to be used in the active control of civil structures. The control of a simple span beam is used as an illustrated example.
