Continuum topology optimization is an effective way to reduce vibration and noise of vibro-acoustic coupling system. However, the high computation time required for calculating the vibro-acoustic responses during topology optimization is a major obstacle for practical applications. In this paper, a novel symmetric method of vibro-acoustic system matrix is proposed, and a new model reduction method is developed based on Craig–Bampton mode synthesis method to compute dynamic responses with adequate efficiency and accuracy for topology optimization. The comparison results show that the proposed method substantially reduces the degrees of freedom (DOFs) and calculation time. The response values and eigenfrequencies calculated by the model reduction method are exactly the same as those of the full model. Furthermore, the bidirectional evolutionary structural optimization (BESO) algorithm is applied to solve the problem of minimizing the response of a single frequency and a certain range of frequency excitation at a specified target point. The results show that the optimization algorithm converges fast, the iterative process is robust and the response values of different coupling systems can be reduced to a higher extend, which indicates the applicability of the optimization algorithm.
