In this paper we study some optimization problems for nonlinear elastic membranes. More precisely, we consider the problem of optimizing the cost functional \(\mathcal {J}(u)=\int_{\partial\Omega}f(x)u\,\mathrm {d}\mathcal {H}^{N-1}\) over some admissible class of loads f where u is the (unique) solution to the problem −Δ p u+|u| p−2 u=0 in Ω with | u| p−2 u ν =f on Ω.
