Abstract : This paper addresses itself to the automated optimum design of transmission line towers, modelled as a space truss in dynamic response regime. The basic thrust of the investigation is to achieve the optimum configuration of the tower. The objective is to minimize the total weight of the tower including the weight of the secondary members. The design variables chosen in the present work are the base width and the panel heights in the body of the tower.
