Abstract:   (1151 Views)
Optimal locations of the actuators for frame active control are investigated in this article. The aim is to minimize the structural drifts by employing several actuators. By utilizing genetic algorithm, the appropriate locations of the actuators are determined. They should be placed in locations where they can minimize the maximum structural drift. To explore the capability of the proposed techniques, the response of a 20-story building is controlled using three suggested methods. Furthermore, two different concepts are considered for comparing the performance of the authors' approaches. One is based on the maximum responses of the structure, and the other is according to the magnitudes of the actuators' forces. All findings prove the efficiency of the recommended strategies.
