Abstract
The main objective of applying robust active control to base-isolated structures is to protect them in the event of an earthquake. Taking advantage of the discontinuous control theory, a static discontinuous active bang-bang type control is developed using only the measure of the velocity at the base as a feedback. Moreover, due to that in many engineering applications, accelerometers are the only devices that provide information available for feedback; our velocity feedback controller could be ...
