Optimum layout of constructions leads, generally, to narrow and thin-walled shapes of the weather, and such parts are topic to the lack of balance. for that reason the limitations of structural optimization frequently comprise balance constraints, expressed via a few eigenvalues. optimum layout below vibration constraints belongs additionally to optimization with admire to eigenvalues.

The wave motion trajectories are in a circular form. The characteristic feature of Rayleigh waves is the amplitude decay as one goes deeper into the material. Love waves have a more complex displacement field than Rayleigh waves. Similar to Rayleigh, though, Love wave amplitude decays with increasing depth. If one considers plates or shells, the transverse (shear) waves can be split into two types: shear horizontal (SH) waves and shear vertical (SV) waves. In the case of SH waves, the oscillations are horizontal; whereas, in the case of SV waves, the oscillations occur in a vertical direction.

Most important is their susceptibility to initiation and growth of damage in the internal structure in the form of delamination. This type of damage is located between layers of composite material and is initiated by impact. Another type of damage is matrix cracking. These two types of damage can be hidden in the internal structure and may not be visible on the surface of composites. Because of this, a need existed to develop methods to detect and localize these defects. Initially, classical nondestructive testing (NDT) methods were utilized in order to assess the state of composite structures.
