By using a new approach based on the embedding process, first, the system is formulated in variational form; then, by transferring the problem into polar coordinates and defining two positive Radon measures, we represent the problem in a space of measures. In this way, the shape design problem is changed into an infinite linear one whose solution is guaranteed. In this stage, by applying two subsequent approximation steps, the optimal solution (optimal control, optimal region, optimal damping parameter and optimal energy) is identified by a three-phase optimization search technique. Numerical simulations are also given in order to compare this new method with another one.https://ijnao.um.ac.ir/article_24457_56d33b965788e68271663adb83293b17.pdf
