Paper Abstract

The semi-active control approach has been recognized to be effective for vibration suppression of flexible structures. The electrorheological (ER) fluid-based device is a good candidate for such applications. In this research, a new control law is developed to maximize the damping effect of ER dampers for structural vibration suppression under actuator constraints and viscous-frictional-combined damping. Both numerical simulations and experimental work have been carried out to evaluate and validate the theoretical predictions.
