Abstract:

Haugers problem with a circular cross-section, with Kelvin-Voigt internal and linear external damping assumed, is optimized within the bounds of a special class of generalized parabola type boundary curves where beam diameter is expressed functionally in terms of axial displacement. In going to a Rosenbrock optimization routine with a minimum tip diameter constraint imposed, it was quite clear that mass ratio reductions of the order of 27 are possible. Author
