Any design optimization problem would be formulated as a multivariable, multi objective, constrained, non-linear programming problem. Various conventional optimization techniques are available for solving the above such problems. Due to the problem complexities and computational inefficiencies, better methods are needed. To achieve this goal, new techniques popularly known as intelligent techniques have been introduced. In this work it is proposed to implement Genetic Algorithm for solving the design optimization problem of Cantilever beam and Torsion rod. Cantilever beam and Torsion rod are used as structural elements in many Mechanical Engineering applications. The objective here is to design a cantilever beam and a Torsion rod for minimum weight in order to withstand the given working condition.
