Optimal design of an optical length of a rod with the given mass
The optical length of an elastic rod appears to be important in
problems of control of its longitudinal vibrations. We consider the problem of optimal design (optimal density distribution) of an elastic rod of a given variable modulus of elasticity with the optical length as a criterion and assuming that the total mass of the rod is given. The results provide some bounds on
the optical length.
