Increasing interest has focused on applying active control systems to civil engineering structures subjected to dynamic loading. This study presents an active pulse control algorithm, termed the adaptive neural structural active pulse (ANSAP) controller, to control civil engineering structures under dynamic loading. The ANSAP controller minimizes structural cumulative responses during earthquakes by applying active pulse control forces. The effect of pulses is assumed to be delayed until just…
