We deal with an optimal control problem governed by a nonlinear hyperbolic initial-boundary value problem describing the perpendicular vibrations of a clamped beam against a u elastic foundation. A variable thickness of a beam plays the role of a control variable. The original equation for the deflection is regularized in order to derive necessary optimality conditions
