Progress has been made toward controlling excessive floor vibration by means of active structural control. In this control scheme an electro-magnetic shaker is used to impart control forces on a floor system, thus, reducing the floor vibration levels. This paper presents an overview of the control system setup and describes two case studies where active control was implemented to improve floor vibration characteristics.
