Many engineering systems, from subsea pipelines to space structures, from moving vehicles to stationary skyscrapers, are subject to unwanted vibration excitations. Often vibration control can be considered as a problem of energy dissipation and vibration damping. The aims of this issue are to accumulate, disseminate, and promote new knowledge about vibration control, especially for topics related to energy dissipation methods for vibration damping. Topics in this issue reflect the start-of-the-arts in the field of vibration control, such as inerter dampers and pounding tuned mass dampers (PTMDs). This special issue also reports other types of new energy dissipation devices, including a multi-unit particle damper, a nonlinear eddy current damper, and layered dampers. Also reported in this issue are structural elements with innovative designs to dissipate energy. In addition, this special issue also reports two research studies on the dynamic responses of a structural foundation and an earth-retaining structure. Though most papers in this special issue are related to passive methods, one paper reports a semi-active vibration control via magnetorheological dampers (MRDs), and another two papers report active vibration controls using piezoelectric transducers and inertial actuators, respectively.
