Recently, sliding mode control(SMC) method has been investigated for control of building structures under earthquake loadings. SMC keeps responses of a structure in sliding surface while the structure is stable. This control method uses both linear controller and nonlinear controller such as bang-bang controller. This paper presents vibration control of a structure using saturated sliding mode controller, whose maximum conrtol force is limited. The effectiveness of SMC method with controler saturation is investigated based on two performance evaluation criteria: root mean square(RMS) and maximum values of floor drifts and accelerations. Simulation results indicate that SMC method is effective in reduction of displacement and acceleration utilizing the saturated controller's capacity efficiently.
