This paper lies within the framework of the so-called redesign problem of structures subjected to dynamic constraints. A hybrid synthesis algorithm is developed, combining the truncated modal basis of the initial system and the spatial or material co-ordinates of an added component, which is modelled with shell-type finite elements parameterized with respect to a shape factor. Based upon a quadratic inverse formulation, the proposed technique shows several advantages in comparison to other synthesis methods, such as a refined sensitivity strategy, a powerful modal synthesis approach and a simplified optimization phase. Numerical examples are provided illustrating the capabilities of the novel procedure.
