Paper Abstract

The problem of modeling and control of displacement, force excited single degree freedom structure and displacement excited two degree of freedom structure with ER fluid damper is presented. A Sliding Mode Controller (SMC) is designed and applied to control seismically excited vibrations in these structures. The performance of SMC is compared with Lyapunov's direct method based controller.
