Abstract

The benchmark structural control problem is presented for the evaluation of the effectiveness and implementability of structural control algorithms and to provide an analytical testbed for the evaluation of control design issues. The structure is a scale model of a three-story building using an active mass driver. A model for the structural system was developed from experimentally-obtained data and forms the basis for the benchmark study. Control constraints and evaluation criteria are presented for the design problem. A simulation program was developed to facilitate comparison of the efficiency and merit of various control strategies. The benchmark problem may be an initial step toward the development of standardized performance evaluation procedures.
