Title: Semiactive Control of Nonlinear Structures (NEES-2005-0021)
Year Of Curation: 2015
Description: This pre-NEESR project will conduct fast-hybrid testing at the CU NEES FHT facility using large-scale Magneto-Rheological fluid dampers (built by the Lord Corporation) as semiactive control devices distributed throughout a simulated structure for seismic protection.
