The Third International Conference
on Soft Computing Technology in
Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering
Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy
3-6 September 2013
Soft Computing Applications in Vibration Control and Dynamic Monitoring
organised by Dr G. Quaranta and Prof. G.C. Marano
Technical University of Bari, Italy
Session Aims and Scope
This special session would solicit the submission of original papers about the application of soft computing methodologies (i.e. neural networks, fuzzy logics, evolutionary computation, metaheuristic and swarm intelligence) in the area of vibration control and dynamic monitoring. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following: optimum design of mechanical systems for mitigating the effects of dynamic loads; optimization of passive, semi-active or active devices for vibration control; control strategies in active and semi-active devices for vibration mitigation; optimization of sensor networks; parametric or non-parametric techniques for mechanical system identification; model updating; damage detection; diagnostic. Authors are invited to submit unpublished research contributions, case studies and industrial applications.
