The vibration control performance of a semi-active damper connected to adjacent buildings subjected to seismic loads was investigated. The MR damper was used as a semi-active control device. A fuzzy logic control algorithm was used for effective control of the adjacent buildings connected to the MR damper. In the buildings control coupled with a MR damper, the response reduction of one building results in an increase in the response in another building. Because of these conflict characteristics, multi-objective optimization is required. Therefore, a fuzzy logic control algorithm for the control of a MR damper was optimized using a multi-objective genetic algorithm. Based on numerical analyses, the semi-active fuzzy control of MR damper for adjacent coupled buildings can provide good control performance.
