Abstract

In this paper the method of topology optimization is used to find optimized parameter distributions for a multiple mass damper system with the purpose of minimizing the low-frequency steady-state response of a carrier structure. An effective density model that describes the steady-state effect of the dampers is derived based on a continuous approximation of the damper distribution. The dampers are optimized with respect to the point-wise distribution of mass ratio, natural frequency, and damping ratio.
