This report presents optimal design of cantilever beams subjected to dynamic input. The beams have radial ribs, and the depth of the ribs are considered as design variables. A lumped mass is placed at the free end of the cantilever beams and its effect on the dynamic response is studied. Numerical results for two examples are obtained and discussed.
