Paper Abstract

The objective of this study is to develop a numerical model of a stay cable interacted with deck, and to examine the vibration suppression technique of the stayed cable subject to external loading. First, a numerical model based on the finite difference method and the finite element method has been developed to simulate the effects of the bending stiffness and its sag-extensibility characteristics of the cable. Accurate vibration mode shapes and modal frequency of the interaction between stay cable and deck are examined. For the vibration control of cable, a MR-damper is used as control device. This damper can be achieved either through the passive control strategy or the semi-active control strategy employing decentralized sliding mode control (DSMC) and maximum energy dissipation (MED) on the staycable. To verify this study, a scaled-down cable structure is designed and constructed in NCREE, Taiwan. A small shaker is designed and mounted onto the cable to generate the sinusoid excitation with different amplitudes and frequencies. Dynamic characteristics of the cable-deck system are identified and the system model is developed for control purpose. The DSMC algorithm using MR damper was studied to reduce the cable vibration under different excitation frequencies.
