In this work, a benchmark problem is proposed that allows the research community, through simulation, to examine the use of wireless accelerometers to provide feedback to the active control system. This benchmark problem considers an original 3 story building model equipped with an active mass driver (AMD) with the modification that it is instrumented using a wireless sensor network. The dynamics of the structure and control device and control-structure interaction (CSI) and realistic wireless sensor network are considered in this benchmark problem.
