Recently, an increasing research effort has been dedicated to analyse transmission and dispersion properties of periodic metamaterials containing resonators, and to optimize the amplitude of selected acoustic band gaps between consecutive dispersion curves in the Floquet-Bloch spectrum. Potential novel applications of this research are in the design of passive mechanical filters/diodes. The present work proposes a way to interpolate the objective functions in such band gap optimization problems, using Radial Basis Functions. The study is motivated by the high computational effort often needed for an exact evaluation of the original objective functions, when using iterative optimization algorithms. By replacing such functions with surrogate objective functions, well-performing suboptimal solutions can be obtained with a small computational effort. Numerical results demonstrate the feasibility of the approach.
