A Review on Adaptive Methods for Structural Control

Ilaria Venanzi
2016 Open Civil Engineering Journal  
Adaptive control algorithms are widely used in many technical fields like aeronautics and robotics for controlling systems whose characteristics vary with time or are uncertain. In the last decades, with the diffusion of active and semiactive control applications in civil engineering, adaptive methods started to be adopted for structural control. This paper provides an up-to-date survey on strategies currently available for adaptive control and a literature overview of solutions examined until

The Open Civil Engineering Journal, 2016, Volume 10 661 testing adaptive control systems and the fast technological developments in the field of smart systems, will soon allow the increase of real applications of adaptive systems for structural control. © Ilaria Venanzi; Licensee Bentham Open This is an open access article licensed under the terms of the Creative Commons Attribution-Non-Commercial 4.0 International Public License (CC BY-NC 4.0) (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/legalcode), which permits unrestricted, non-commercial use, distribution and reproduction in any medium, provided the work is properly cited.
