In this paper, a control strategy to mitigate the
vibrational response of adjacent buildings under seismic excitation
is presented. The proposed strategy combines interbuilding
passive actuators with active actuators placed in the
building stories. The main ideas are presented by means of a
simplified two-building model; however, a semi-decentralized
overlapping approach via the inclusion principle has been used
to impose a proper information exchange structure suitable for
wireless control of large buildings. Numerical simulations have
been carried out to assess the performance of the proposed
methodology with promising results. The overall control system
exhibits some degree of fault-tolerance since only partial
degradation of the control performance results from partial
failures of the control system.
