Abstract The evolutionary structural optimization (ESO) method is based on the simple concept of gradually removing underutilized material and at the same time adding efficient material to the structure. As a result, the resulting structural shape evolves towards an optimum. This paper presents the latest developments of ESO method in generating efficient and innovative structures, including optimal design of bridges, optimization of periodic structures, optimal design of a structure with multiple materials and shape and reinforcement optimization of undergroudn tunnels.
