Shaking table experiment of fault-tolerant seismic vibration control of a building based on sensor reliability Tanaka, S.; Kohiyama, M.


The authors propose a compensation method using the Kalman filter and sensor reliability parameters to assure the continuous performance of vibration control even if sensor failures occur. The effectiveness of the proposed method was verified by conducting a shaking table test using a three-story specimen with an active mass damper, which is a small-scale model of a 15-story building. As a result of the shaking table test with simulated sensor damage, it was confirmed that the responses of inter-story drift angle and absolute acceleration were reduced by the proposed compensation method in comparison with a case without the proposed method.
