  abstract =     "a fuzzy-controlled genetic-based optimisation
                 technique for optimal vibration control of cylindrical
                 shell structures incorporating piezoelectric
                 sensor/actuators (S/As) is proposed. The geometric
                 design variables of the piezoelectric patches,
                 including the placement and sizing of the piezoelectric
                 S/As, are processed using fuzzy set theory. The
                 criterion based on the maximisation of energy
                 dissipation is adopted for the geometric optimization.
                 A fuzzy-rule-based system (FRBS) representing expert
                 knowledge and experience is incorporated in a modified
                 genetic algorithm (GA) to control its search process. A
                 fuzzy logic integrated GA is then developed and
                 implemented. The results of three numerical examples,
                 which include a simply supported plate, a simply
                 supported cylindrical shell, and a clamped simply
                 supported plate, provide some meaningful and heuristic
                 conclusions for practical design. The results also show
                 that the proposed fuzzy-controlled GA approach is more
                 effective and efficient than the pure GA method.",
