Toward a paradigm for civil structural control
S. Casciati, A.G. Chassiakos and S.F. Masri

Abstract     [Full Text]
    Structural control is a very broad field combining the areas of automatic control and structural engineering, with applications ranging from aerospace and mechanical engineering to building and civil infrastructure systems. In this paper, the focus is placed on civil engineering applications only. The goal is to address the issues concurring to form the scientific paradigm. As a resut, possible future directions of research into this field are identified.
