The paper deals with discussion of discrete optimization problem in civil engineering structural space design. Minimization of mass should satisfy the limit state capacity and serviceability conditions. The cross-sectional areas of truss bars are taken as design variables. Optimization constraints concern stresses, displacements and stability, as well as technological and computational requirements.
