This paper expects to add to the diminishment of the critical hole between the state of-the-craft of structural design optimization in research and its practical application in the building industry. The exploration has concentrated on structural topology optimization, researching three particular methods through the common case of bracing design for lateral dependability of steel building frameworks. The exploration objective has been helped by coordinated effort with structural designers at Arup. This investigation is critical in highlighting practical issues in the application of structural optimization in the building industry. This investigation exhibits an execution based optimization method for optimal topology design of bracing systems for multistory steel building frameworks with general stiffness limitation under various lateral loading conditions. Material evacuation criteria are determined by attempted an affectability analysis on the mean consistence of a structure as for element expulsion. An execution list is proposed to assess the execution of coming about bracing systems in the optimization procedure. In the proposed method, unbraced frameworks are at first designed under quality constraints utilizing commercial standard steel sections from databases. The optimal topology of a bracing system for the multistory steel building framework is then created by bit by bit expelling wasteful materials from a continuum design space that is utilized to harden the framework until the point when the execution of the bracing system is expanded. Two design cases are given to outline the adequacy of the execution based design optimization method proposed for the reasonable layout design of lateral bracing systems for multistory steel building frameworks.
