Research over the past several decades into semi-active control has provided useful insight into the practical applications of this type of control on actual structures. Hardware and software limitations, though, have made the implementation of such control very difficult. Time delays in both hardware and software make practical implementation differ greatly from that of theory. These delays, together with a prediction algorithm that may help overcome some of these, are presented in the current paper. The effectiveness of the prediction algorithm is tested analytically and experimentally using sine and random response waves.
