This paper introduces a new approach for the reduction of sound radiation from the mechanical structures. A combination of genetic algorithm method and geometry modification concept minimizes the root mean square level of structure borne sound for a square plate over a specific frequency range. The structure’s local geometry modification values at the selected surface key-points considered as design variables. The model is under three non-symmetric harmonic excitations. An iterative approach is used to develop new modified model until when a termination criterium is rached. The results show that this approach could produce significant reduction in the value of radiated sound power level of the structure.
