Abstract:   (291 Views)
Active tuned mass damper (ATMD) systems have attracted the considerable attention of researchers for protecting buildings subjected to earthquake loading. This paper presentes the development of an optimal sliding mode control (OSMC) system for a building equipped with ATMD. In the OSMC technique, a linear sliding surface is used with the slope of this surface designed such that a given (or desired) cost function is minimized. The design is obtained by transforming the system into the regular form. In the regular form, the system is divided into two subsystems inclding: a control term explicitly appears, and other control terms do not appear. In order to demonstrate the capability of the OSMC system, an 11–story realistic building with a TMD installed on the top story of the structure is considered. For achieving this purpose, four well–known earthquake records are selected to evaluate the performance of the OSMC system. Results show that the OSMC technique performs better than other control techniques in the reduction of seismic responses of the structure.
