In earlier days, the only way to resist the lateral loads was to increase the lateral strength of the structure obtained by making larger cross sections and massive buildings. Structural control is one of the solutions and important topics in both points of view of security and comfort in recent years. To reduce the efect of seismic energy, one of the structural forms used is the outrigger. In recent years, supplementary devices are installed into the outrigger structure so that damping of the structure increases and helps in mitigating the vibration, this concept is called damped outrigger. In this study, a damped outrigger structure replicating St. Francis Shangri-La Place skyscraper is excited for the El-Centro earthquake, and the Kobe earthquake is numerically modeled with viscous dampers and Magneto-Rheological damper to compare its efectiveness. The fnite element approach is used for the analysis of the structure using Bernoulli’s Euler beam theory in modeling the core of the structure as a beam element. The state-space approach is used in modeling the structure, dampers, and controller interface in MATLAB and Simulink, then results are obtained for the peak value of displacement, acceleration, and mean values of the response of the structure. The results are discussed, which shows the signifcant distinction between uncontrolled and controlled responses.
