 Integrated structural analysis and design software packages, which generally work on finite element method for analysis and design, have been gaining popularity in the field of designing since they have reduced the tedious calculation process to a simple process of just giving input values. The result generated is according to the values entered without the consideration of the feasibility. Moreover, optimization of structures has been a lesser used concept in day-to-day working and is independent of design and analysis of the structures. This paper provides a study of various levels of research work done in computational structural analysis. The crust of our review focuses on the analysis of optimization of truss, complex or simple because truss is the most widely used and fundamental building block of any structure.
