This paper is concerned with controller design and its experimental evaluation for active vibration control of a building structure in case of earthquake. Taking account of the mode-decomposition for the building structure model, we design an H controller for active vibration control, where we adopt the linear matrix inequality approach because the standard assumption of Hcontrol is not satisfied in this case. Then we evaluate its effectiveness for a five-story building structure via experiments.
