Magnetorheological damper is a type of advanced damping system that can reduce the impact of earthquakes on structures. This video demonstrates the project that applies magnetorheological damper in large scale. Real-time Hybrid Simulation and Over-Driven Clipped Optimal Control are used in this project, and their performances are validated through experiments.
