Paper Abstract

Smart structures withstanding earthquake and high wind haveemerged using complex systems such as Active Mass Driven (AMD) and ActiveVariable Stiffness (AVS) Systems. A simple alternative system is proposed wherea system of auxiliary masses move in a prescribed fashion. The mass translationchanges the dynamic characteristics to render the structure non-resonant during theexternal stimuli. The lower amplitude of vibration of a non-resonant system reducesthe damage and disruption. The dynamic response is modeled by the analysis of acantilever beam with auxiliary masses moving in a prescribed fashion.
