Optimisation is the controlling factor in every sort of manufacturing process for better productivity with minimal usage of labour, materials and power .In this context structural optimisation is a challenging task for the engineering fields connected with manufacturing. With the introduction of computers in the process of structural analysis, structural optimisation also underwent drastic developments. It is alarming that the natural resources are exhausting at a high rate due to the industrialisation and the higher per capita usage of different metallic and non metallic substances. So the materials should be utilized with minimum usage and maximum efficiency for the conservation of nature and to cater for the future needs. The advancement in structural optimisation is the only remedy resorted for the efficient utilization of the resources in a scientific way. Compared to other engineering fields the developments in structural optimisation in civil engineering field is still far behind. So a collaborative effort from the various experts in different specialisation in civil engineering is resorted to the effective utilisation of this method to the advancement of cost effective utilisation of various resources.
