Practical Aspects of Structural Control

by James T. P. Yao, Texas A&M Univ, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structural Safety and Reliability


Several problems in the practical implementation of structural control are discussed herein. These problems include the prediction of the actual behavior of existing structures, mathematical modelling of such behavior, several types of uncertainties, and the effect of these uncertainties on the reliability of controlled structures. The possible applications of automated system identification and fuzzy logic to structural control are also briefly reviewed.

Subject Headings: Structural behavior | Hydraulic structures | Structural control | Structural reliability | Automatic identification systems | Wood structures | Failure analysis | System reliability
