In this paper, nonlinear vibration of a triangular shape plate, with several stiffeners, is studied. The governing equation of transversal deflection of the plate, with considering the effects of orthotropic characteristics and external excitation, is analyzed. The ordinary differential equation for the time response of the system, through employing the Galerkin method, is obtained; and the frequency response of the plate-shape structure — using the multiple scale method — is determined. A robust genetic-based multi-objective optimization technique is employed to optimize the system’s response by finding the optimum values of the geometry and locations of the plate’s stiffeners. The influence of various parameters on the optimization results is investigated. According to the results, the optimum design of the stiffeners leads to a better performance of the vibration response.
