Abstract
This paper presents a semi-active control of a scaled two-span bridge structure. Magneto-rheological fluid (MRF) dampers are utilized as the semi-active devices and a bridge vibration control system is developed. Both open and closed-loop control systems are used to suppress the bridge deck motion under simple harmonic and simulated earthquake excitation. Effectiveness of each system is discussed. It is demonstrated that the closed-loop control systems can reduce the relative deck displacement of the bridge, while simultaneously limiting the peak damper forces.
