Abstract: Optimization of structures has always been a subject of continuous interest in the field of structural engineering. The amount of research work and publications in this field show various mathematical approaches adopted to effectively use materials used for construction. A novel iterative Node Based Smoothing Method for the evolution of optimum design of trusses is presented.
Keywords: Structural Optimization, Topology, Sizing, Shape, Trusses, Iterative Process, Nodal Position.
