The optimization of important structural components - such as beams - has always represented a crucial challenge in architectural and structural design, especially considering how the optimization of certain components often involves the loss of control of structural shapes. In this research, an analytical model for shape optimization is developed. The shape of the test-case, a variable-section beam, is modelled and optimized using two different approaches and solvers: I) MATLAB-GA®, a stochastic, population-based algorithm that randomly searches the optimal solution among population members, by mutation and crossover operators; ii) Gh-Octopus®, a Multi-Objective Evolutionary Optimization solver, which allows the production of optimized trade-off solutions between the extremes of each goal, able to support designers in decision making. The methods combine Computational Geometry and Parametric Design and allow control of the shapes of structural elements while increasing structural performance.
