Considerable interest has been devoted to the development of various classes of acoustic metamaterials that can control the propagation of acoustical wave energy throughout fluid domains. However, all the currently exerted efforts are focused on studying passive metamaterials with fixed material properties. In this paper, the emphasis is placed on the(More)
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(More)
