Fuzzy control has recently been proposed to control the properties of magnetorheological (MR) dampers and therefore reduce vibrations of civil structures subjected to earthquake loads. These controllers have the advantage of not depending on system model, of being simple, and intrinsically robust. Their tuning, however, has shown to be a difficult task. This paper proposes a gain-scheduled fuzzy controller to regulate the damping properties of MR dampers and reduce structural responses of… CONTINUE READING
