    This article proposes an adaptive predictive control design technique to mitigate the displacement in a hysteretical base-isolated system seismically perturbed. The obtained predictive control law is based on the ...
  • Advanced computational design of shared tuned mass-inerter dampers for vibration control of adjacent multi-story structures 

    Palacios Quiñonero, Francisco; Rubió Massegú, Josep; Rossell Garriga, Josep Maria; Karimi, Hamid Reza (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Inerters are a novel type of mechanical actuation devices that are able to produce large inertial forces with a relatively small mass. Due to this property, inerters can provide an effective solution to the main drawbacks ...
  • An asymmetric-friction based model for magnetorheological dampers 

    García Baños, Isabel; Ikhouane, Fayçal; Aguirre Carvajal, Naile (2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    The modeling of magnetorheological dampers combines the use of the laws of physics along with a phenomenological description. The phenomenological models that are used to describe these devices present a symmetric ...
  • Non-linear damage classification based on machine learning and damage indices 

    Tibaduiza Burgos, Diego Alexander; Torres-Arredondo, Miguel Ángel; Vitola Oyaga, Jaime; Anaya Vejar, Maribel; Pozo Montero, Francesc (2017)
    Conference lecture
