In order to accommodate the actuator failure, the finite-time stable nonsmooth control method with RBF neural network is used to suppress the structural vibration. The traditional designed control methods neglect influence of actuator failure in structural vibration. By Lyapunov stable theory, the designed control method is demonstrated to suppress the building structural vibration with actuator failure. Finally, there are some examples to numerically simulate the three-layer building structure which is affected by El Centro seismic wave. Control effect of nonsmooth control is compared with no control and LQR control. The simulation results demonstrate that the designed control method is great for vibration of building structure with actuator failure and great antiseismic effect.
