analytical research is to investigate the ability of a new building technique
called Multi-Frequency Quieting Building System
(MFQBS) to mitigate seismic / wind forces,
to determine when, where
and how the MFQBS
should be applied to improve a building's performance, and to develop recommendations
for architects / engineers (Topic
9). The objectives of
the research are:
Establish basic algorithms to assess a demand on and behavior of buildings,
with and without MFQBS, exposed to an earthquake/wind.
a computational procedure for a performance oriented building evaluation.
Develop the corresponding computer software capable of running a real time
visualization of the basic earthquake engineering situations related to
the MFQBS application.
