Article Preview

The present paper describes the development of a genetic algorithm (GA) based methodology for determination of optimal number of actuators and their locations in smart fiber reinforced polymer composite shell structures. Finite element (FE) based state space representation of the system has been used to determine the optimal placement of actuators in order to maximize the controllability. Spillover from residual modes has also been considered while maximizing controllability. Even though the developed methodology needs a large computational time, it will be useful in off-line determination of optimal actuators locations in large structures.
