Title

Semi-active control of elastic and inelastic building structures with piezoelectric friction dampers

Alternative Title

Semi active control of elastic and inelastic building structures with piezoelectric friction dampers

Abstract

"In this study, a piezoelectric friction damper (PFD) was first introduced with its clamping force regulated by piezoelectric stack actuators. A new semi-active control algorithm, which consists of Coulomb friction, viscous and non-linear Reid damping mechanisms, was proposed to drive the piezoelectric stack actuators."--Abstract, page iii.
