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