    Abstract :

    The main purpose of the structural optimization is to reduce the manufacturing cost of the structure corresponding to material requirement in present era. However, economic design should not deviate from engineering restrictions, specification and laws. In order to increase the optimization speed and decrease the solution time of the problem, an efficient computer tool is used and analysis methods has been employed leading to reduction of the time required for computing of the objective function. HyperWork is known for handling global optimization problems when many local optima are present in a non-continuous system. The objective of present study is the minimization of mass with optional stress and displacement constraints. Stress or displacement constraints applied to stand a typical optimization problem will utilize and size capabilities. The first phase is that of the structure, containing all implications and capabilities in the static analysis of such problem. The second phase applies to that of structural optimization, more specifically the optimization of size and topology.
