Homogenization and Topology Optimization of Constrained Layer Damping Treatments

Constrained Layer Damping (CLD) has been extensively used in structural designs as a powerful mean to damp out resonant structural vibrations. The main goal of this work is to investigate the use of homogenization and structural topology optimization as a tool to optimize the CLD treatments in order to enhance the energy dissipation characteristics of the vibrating structures. Homogenization theory is introduced in the first part along with structural topology optimization techniques…
