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.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Romina Rovan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
