Paper Abstract

Smart structures withstanding earthquake and high wind have emerged using complex systems such as Active Mass Driven (AMD) and Active Variable Stiffness (AVS) Systems. A simple alternative system is proposed where a system of auxiliary masses move in a prescribed fashion. The mass translation changes the dynamic characteristics to render the structure non-resonant during the external stimuli. The lower amplitude of vibration of a non-resonant system reduces the damage and disruption. The dynamic response is modeled by the analysis of a cantilever beam with auxiliary masses moving in a prescribed fashion.
