Optimal Location of Plate Damped Parts by Use of a Genetic Algorithm
Optimal damping of plates (or beams) partially covered by viscoelastic constrained layers is presented. The design variables are the locations and the sizes of the damped parts. The objective function is a linear combination of the first modal damping factors calculated from a specific finite element analysis. The discrete design variable optimization problem is solved using a genetic algorithm.
