Paper Abstract

Advances in the design, materials and constructiontechniques that provide buildings and structures with the capacity towithstand and resist natural and man-made dynamic forces have been theresult of civilian engineering research. In recent years the possibility ofusing passive and active control systems, new sensors and devices formonitoring structures behavior to control and reduce these structural andnon-structural damages has become an area of considerable interest.Existing research programs and a new initiative on structural controldeveloped in the Directorate for Engineering, National ScienceFoundation, will be described. The content, issues addressed and scopeof this initiative will be discussed together with a brief description of themain topics broached by the proposals received in the first year ofactivities.
