Abstract: This paper presents the use of multi-objective genetic algorithm (MOGA) to solve an integrated optimization problem for the shape control of flexible beams with Active Constrained Layer Damping (ACLD) treatment. The design objectives are to minimize the total weight of the system, the input voltage and the steady-state error between the achieved and desired shapes. Design variables include the thickness of the constraining layer and viscoelastic layer, the length and location of the ACLD patches, as well as the control gains. In order to evaluate the effect of different combinations of design variables on the system performance, the finite element method, in conjunction with the Golla-Hughes-McTavish (GHM) method, is employed to model a clamped-free beam with ACLD patches. As a result of the optimization, a Pareto solution is successfully obtained. It is shown that the MOGA is applicable to the present integrated optimization problem, and ACLD treatment is suitable for shape control of flexible structures.
