This paper presents the design of second-order sliding mode controllers for semi-active control using magneto-rheological (MR) dampers. The approach can be useful in applications involving shock absorbers but here our main concern is the suppression of building vibrations induced by dynamic loadings such as earthquakes or strong winds. The MR dampers have(More)
This paper presents an efficient control strategy for magnetorheological (MR) dampers embedded in building structures to mitigate quake-induced vibrations. In this work, MR dampers are used as semi-active devices, taking the advantages of the fail-safe operation and low power requirement. By using a static hysteresis model for the MR damper, a suitable(More)
