Article Preview

This paper examines the effectiveness of the Active Tuned Liquid Column Gas Damper (ATLCGD) when equipped on the plan-asymmetric structures subjected to earthquake excitation. The active behaviour is obtained by adjusting the pressure at the end of the liquid column using a pressurised reservoir. The classical linear quadratic regulator (LQR) control strategy is applied to determine optimal control force of the ATLCGDs. A case study of a four-storey asymmetric structure is conducted to illustate excellent control efficacy of the proposed active TLCGD control system.
