Paper Abstract

Attention is focused on low-damping-rubber base-isolators. Instead of thinking in terms of intelligent materials, this paper pursues the definition of conditions of behavior which result intelligent in view of a coupling with an active control device (hybrid control). In particular, situations which show a chaotic behavior of the dynamic response to external excitations are promising in terms of control efficiency. The regions of chaotic behavior are identified by evaluation of the corresponding Lyapunov exponents.
