The present paper deals with the shape design optimization of bodies subjected to a non-homogeneous Helmholtz equation. Using the adjoint variable method the material derivative of a general integral functional is obtained analytically. Boundary integral equations defined only on the boundary are derived using auxiliary fundamental solutions to be used in the boundary element method. Some constrained shape design optimization problems are solved by the proposed numerical procedure.
