The article presents results of experimental analysis targeted to actuator and sensor failures in the overlapping decentralized LQG feedback-based structure to mitigate responses of an earthquake-excited 20-story building. The building structure belongs to the second generation of civil engineering benchmark models. It includes a complete physical description, a high-fidelity finite element model and a Matlab/Simulink simulation framework. The presented performance analysis is focused on sensor and actuator failures appearing in individual local loops within two overlapped subsystems of an in-plane (2D) structure under the four real world historical earthquake records. The benchmark evaluation criteria and dynamic responses are analyzed to assess the acceptable performance.
