About the book
Safety of structures is the key point in engineering industries. There are multiple procedures to improve the performance of structures to make sure that the occupants are safe and in comfort. Vibration control of structures is crucial for confirming their protection in the occurrence of sudden dynamical forces. Vibration control of structures is proposed to suppress and control any unnecessary vibration formed by dynamical forces that could possibly alter the performance of the structure. Even though numerous vibration control of schemes have been investigated so far, additional concerns involving their practical application remain to be studied. Also to present the use of optimization techniques such as harmony search, genetic algorithms, and particle swarm optimization to vibration control of structures.
This book intends to provide the reader with a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-the-art in vibration control and safety of structures, including an easy-to-follow, article-based presentation that focuses on the most important evidence-based developments in this critically important area.
