Analysis of nonlinear structural systems accounting for both system parameter uncertainty and excitation stochasticity
Limiting ourselves to only loading and system parameter uncertainties, the dynamic loading to a structure can be modeled as a random function while the system or material parameters can be modeled as random fields. Through ...
A Monte Carlo study of vibration isolation systems using linear and nonlinear multiple tuned mass damper oscillators
The vibration isolation effect of linear and nonlinear single degree of freedom oscillators attached to a structure is studied. This system of oscillators, directly attached to the main structure, induces a decrease to the ...
Repetitive control of hysteretic systems using robust H-infinity controller
Unique properties of smart materials have enabled them to successfully replace conventional actuators and sensors. However, their effectiveness and applicability in control is hindered due to the presence of inherent ...
