Optimal design of structural parameters of flexible linkage mechanisms for noise attenuation is studied in this paper. The sum of weighted mass of the structure and weighted measure of acoustic radiation energy is taken as the performance index, and the thickness of the links of the mechanism is taken as the design variable. Optimization is carried out based on the modified constrained variable metric method. Simulation demonstrates that the proposed method is valid.
