Seismic Performance Enhancement of Base-Isolation Systems Using Semi-Active Damping Devices

Abstract

The use of semi-active devices can be a viable solution to decrease the acceleration demand in base-isolated structures under short-period ground motions while it can maximize the damping force under long-period ground motions by adaptively activating/deactivating the damper according to a control law based on structural response. A robust new semi-active… (More)
