In this article, triangular optimizer algorithm optimization method is presented for minimizing the weight of the truss structures. Triangular optimizer algorithm is a new metaheuristic method which is inspired of triangle. In this method, the initial vector of design variables is considered as the base of the triangle (first row). Then the objective functions are calculated and the best and the worst response are identified. The worst response is removed from the current population and the remaining population after some modifications is defined the second row. This process continues till reaching the apex of triangle, the optimal solution of this triangle. In the second iteration (second triangle), a certain number of the initial design variables are retrieved by the optimal solution of the previous triangle and the remaining of this population are created in the initial interval for escape from local optimums. So base of the second optimal triangle is formed. Then the mentioned algorithm is performed until optimum response of second triangle is achieved. These operations are continued until the convergence condition being satisfied. To prove the capabilities of the proposed algorithm shaping and sizing-shaping optimization of four truss structures are considered. The obtained statistical results of truss structures optimization show that the TOA is able to managed to achieve better optimal solutions compared to different optimization techniques.
