This work is concerned with disturbance amplification in interconnected systems which contain a large number of elements. The main focus is on passive control of a chain of masses where a single point is subject to an external disturbance. This problem arises in the design of multi-storey buildings subjected to earthquakes, but applies in other situations such as bidirectional control of vehicle platoons. We investigate the scalability of this system, i.e., the ability to control a system behaviour independent of its size.
