This study examines the feasibility of applying adaptive fuzzy sliding mode control (AFSMC) strategies to reduce the dynamic responses of bridges constructed using a lead rubber bearing (LRB) isolation hybrid protective system. Recently developed control devices for civil engineering structures, including hybrid systems and semi-active systems, have been found to have inherent nonlinear properties. It is thus necessary to develop non-linear control methods to deal with such properties…
