Fuzzy logic control (FLC) and genetic algorithms (GA) are integrated into a new approach for the semi-active control of structures installed with MR dampers against severe dynamic loadings such as earthquakes. The interactive relationship between the structural response and the input voltage of MR dampers is established by using a fuzzy controller rather than the traditional way by introducing an ideal active control force. GA is employed as an adaptive method for optimization of parameters and for selection of fuzzy rules of the fuzzy control system, respectively. The maximum structural displacement is selected and used as the objective function to be minimized. The objective function is then converted to a fitness function to form the basis of genetic operations, i.e. selection, crossover, and mutation. The proposed integrated architecture is expected to generate an effective and reliable fuzzy control system by GA’s powerful searching and self-learning adaptive capability.
