9781466620292: Design Optimization of Active and Passive Structural Control Systems

A typical engineering task during the development of any system is, among others, to improve its performance in terms of cost and response. Improvements can be achieved either by simply using design rules based on the experience or in an automated way by using optimization methods that lead to optimum designs.

Design Optimization of Active and Passive Structural Control Systems includes Earthquake Engineering and Tuned Mass Damper research topics into a volume taking advantage of the connecting link between them, which is optimization. This is a publication addressing the design optimization of active and passive control systems. This title is perfect for engineers, professionals, professors, and students alike, providing cutting edge research and applications.

About the Author:

Dr. Nikos D. Lagaros is a Lecturer at the Institute of Structural Analysis and Seismic Research of the School of Civil Engineering, National Technical University of Athens and at the School of Corps of Engineers of the Hellenic Army since 2007. He is serving as treasurer of the Greek Association for Computational Mechanics, while he acts as NSF panellist at the Directorate for Engineering Civil, Mechanical and Manufacturing Innovation, since 2010. Dr. Lagaros provides consulting, peer-review and expert-witness services to private companies and federal government agencies in Greece. A focus of his consulting work is the assessment of buildings after earthquake events and the development of technical software. The results of his research activity encompass a wide range of topics with an interdisciplinary character in the field of computational mechanics. His published research work contains: 70 peer-reviewed journal papers, 1 book, 6 contributed books, 2 international conference proceedings, 15 chapters in international books, 135 papers in international conferences.

Dr. Vagelis Plevris is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering Educators, School of Pedagogical & Technological Education (ASPETE) in Athens, Greece and a research associate at the School of Civil Engineering, National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). He holds a bachelor in Civil Engineering, an MSc in Earthquake Engineering, a PhD in Computational Mechanics from NTUA and also a Master in Business Administration from the Athens University of Economics and Business. His research work focuses mainly on computational earthquake engineering, design optimization, reliability analysis of structures and neural networks applications in structural engineering. His published research work includes more than 10 peer-reviewed journal papers, 4 contributed books as editor, 4 chapters in international scientific books and 22 papers in international conferences.

Dr. Chara Ch. Mitropoulou is a post-doctoral researcher at the Institute of Structural Analysis and Seismic Research of the School of Civil Engineering, National Technical University of Athens. She holds BSc, MSc and Ph.D. degrees in Civil Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens. She has participated in a number of research projects and consultancies in the areas of structural analysis and structural dynamics, shape, sizing and topology optimum design of structures, mathematical programming, performance based design of RC and steel structures as well as life cycle cost and fragility assessment of structures. Her publications include 4 book chapters, 2 papers in non-referred international scientific journals, 7 publications in referred international scientific journals and 13 papers in conference proceedings.

Review:

Structural control systems are designed to protect buildings, bridges, power plants, and other structures during earthquakes, and provide an alternative to conventional structural design methods. Pivoting on the concept of optimization, engineers here discuss various aspects of active and passive versions. Among the topics are the optimal placement of viscous dampers for seismic building design, the optimal design and practical considerations of tuned mass dampers, a neuromorphic smart controller for seismically excited structures, the optimum design of a new hysteretic dissipater, and multi-objective genetic algorithms for seismic response controls of structure. --Annotation ©2012 Book News Inc.
