Masters ThesisOptimal linear control of inelastic structures using an evolutionary gain formulation to satisfy performance objectives.Dansby, Robin E.An optimal linear control-law formulation is developed herein using an evolutionary state-transition to meet various performance objectives in seismically excited structures. The control-law makes use of a predictive optimal linear control algorith . . .
ArticleEvolutionary control of structurally damaged steel buildings using an optimal state transition formulationDansby, Robin E.A control nonlinear time-history analysis program, dubbed CONON, was developed to simulate the stress-strain responses of structural members and to compute the optimal control forces per time step. The minimization of the cost function is independent . . .
