The subject of structural control deals with modifying the response of structures to undesirable motions that are produced by earthquake, wind or man-made forces. In the case of wind forces, the motions are usually of small amplitude caused by moderate gusts but are objectionable to the tenants of the upper floors. Various methods of control have been employed, including introducing damping, installing moveable masses on the upper floor, etc.
