This study presents a new method for determining suitable locations and number of MagnetoRheological dampers in semi active procedures. Here, the first mode of structural oscillation is used and some specific criteria are introduced to classify the structural types. Based on this classification, the structural stories are divided into three categories: very weak, weak, and strong. The best place to install a MR damper is very weak stories. The efficiency of dampers will increase if MR dampers attached to the very weak stories so that the relative displacement of top of structure reduces considerably. Moreover, the number of MR dampers is assumed to be equal to the number of very weak stories as the dampers act by high performance. This method easily provides the necessary information for the structural control designer to use these devices logically and efficiently. By applying this approach, designers can easily determine number and location MR dampers. Moreover, the proposed method could determine number of fully activated dampers; however, MR dampers may not be completely activated in common techniques. Based on the proposed approach, vibrations of four models are controlled by MR dampers and results are compared with conventional techniques. Results show that the suggested method has suitable efficiency and consistency with other well-known studies.
Journal author rights
In order for Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration to publish and disseminate research articles, we need publishing rights. This is determined by a publishing agreement between the author and Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration. This agreement deals with the transfer or license of the copyright to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration and authors retain significant rights to use and share their own published articles. Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration supports the need for authors to share, disseminate and maximize the impact of their research and these rights, in Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration proprietary are defined below:
For subscription articles:
Authors transfer copyright to the publisher as part of a journal publishing agreement, but have the right to: Share their article for personal use (manuscript version); retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
For open access articles:
Authors sign an exclusive license agreement, where authors have copyright but license exclusive rights in their article to the publisher. In this case authors have the right to: share their article in the same ways permitted to third parties under the relevant user license; retain patent, trademark and other intellectual property rights (including research data); proper attribution and credit for the published work.
Rights granted to Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration
For both subscription and open access articles, published in proprietary titles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration is granted the following rights:
- The exclusive right to publish and distribute an article, and to grant rights to others, including for commercial purposes;
- For open access articles, Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration will apply the relevant third party user licence (Open access licencses) where Romanian Journal of Acoustics and Vibration publishes the article on its online platforms;
