Research on Semi-Active Control of Large-Scale Aqueduct
The magneto rheological damper (MRD) is employed to control the seismic response of large-scale aqueduct. The active control, semi-active control and passive control strategies are systematically compared, The results indicated that the magneto rheological dampers are effective in reducing the aqueduct response, the mitigation rate of semi-active control approaches with the active method The results from the present study may serve as a reference base for seismic design of large-scale aqueducts, and provide theoretical basis of aqueduct using semi-active devices.
