Expertise and Expert Systems for Active Control Design: (a) design rules; (b) analytical

-Universite Libre de Bruxelles has developed an approximate linear theory assuming that the dynamics of the active cables can be neglected and that their interaction with the structure is restricted to the tension in the cables. The experimental campaign has shown that this theory could be extended to complex civil structures.

-Analytical design models have been developed regarding the actuator behaviours.

-Manufacturing procedures have been developed by the device manufacturers.

-Application of the active control strategy to real structures by the civil engineering experts including technical and economic aspects has exhibited the efficiency of the system and the large field of application to cable-supported structures.
