Summary
"The recent introduction of active and passive structural control methods has given structural designers powerful tools for performance-based design. However, structural engineers often lackthe tools for the optimal selection and placement of such systems. In Building Control with Passive Dampers, Takewaki brings together the most reliable, state-of-the-art methods used around the world, arming readers with a real sense of how to address optimal selection and placement of passive control systems." "This book is essential for post-graduate students, researchers, and design consultants involved in building control. Professional engineers and advanced undergraduates interested in seismic design, as well as mechanical engineers looking for vibration damping techniques, will also find this book a helpful reference."--Jacket.
