Short summary
The paper provides a numerical study of a semi-active control strategy for structural vibrations caused by earthquake or wind excitations. A sliding-mode non-linear controller was designed and reinforced by an adaptive switching gain to overcome the chattering problem and perform the stability proven by the Lyapunov stability criterion. The compared and discussed numerical simulation results have shown the performance of the proposed semi-active control.
