In earthquake engineering, vibration control is a set of technical means for decreasing seismic loads and improving seismic performance of building structures.
Types of vibration control devices
All vibration control devices may be classified as passive, active  or hybrid. The first kind is the simplest one and, therefore, widespread. Passive control devices represent different types of base isolators and seismic dampers.
