1 May 1992 Non-resonant systems for adaptive and smart structural control

Smart structures withstanding earthquake and high wind have emerged using complex systems such as Active Mass Driven (AMD) and Active Variable Stiffness (AVS) Systems. A simple alternative system is proposed where a system of auxiliary masses move in a prescribed fashion. The mass translation changes the dynamic characteristics to render the structure non-resonant during the external stimuli. The lower amplitude of vibration of a non-resonant system reduces the damage and disruption. The dynamic response is modeled by the analysis of a cantilever beam with auxiliary masses moving in a prescribed fashion.
