Abstract

After a review of the structural control implementations expected in the area of Civil and Architectural Engineering, these notes approach some associated research fields. Special care is devoted to the interdisciplinary character of the achievable progress and to the role played by laboratory testing in the scientific and technical development of structural control and structural control applications.
