  abstract =     "This paper presents a genetic programming method for
                 the topological optimisation of bracing systems for
                 steel frameworks. The method aims to create novel, but
                 practical, optimally-directed design solutions, the
                 derivation of which can be readily understood. Designs
                 are represented as trees with one-bay, one-story
                 cellular bracing units, operated on by design
                 modification functions. Genetic operators
                 (reproduction, crossover, mutation) are applied to
                 trees in the development of subsequent populations. The
                 bracing design for a three-bay, 12-story steel
                 framework provides a preliminary test problem, giving
                 promising initial results that reduce the structural
                 mass of the bracing in comparison to previous published
                 benchmarks for a displacement constraint based on
                 design codes. Further method development and
                 investigations are discussed.",
