Structural vibration control is a promising research area for researchers and engineers in relevant engineering fields, which is attracting more and more attentions in the world. This lecture presents the research on metallic damper, friction-Metallic combination damper, story-increased buildings with energy dissipated devices, tuned mass damper, tuned liquid (column) damper, base isolation with rubber bearings, active mass damper, smart vibration control and their applications in real civil engineering projects carried out at the Dalian University of Technology. We also include concluding remarks and future works and suggestions towards the end of the seminar.
