Abstract: In this paper, we develop a neutrosophic optimization (NSO) approach for optimizing the design of plane truss structure with single objective subject to a specified set of constraints. In this optimum design formulation, the objective functions are the weight of the truss and the deflection of loaded joint; the design variables are the crosssections of the truss members; the constraints are the stresses in members. A classical truss optimization example is presented to demonstrate the efficiency of the neutrosophic optimization approach. The test problem includes a two-bar planar truss subjected to a single load condition. This singleobjective structural optimization model is solved by fuzzy and intuitionistic fuzzy optimization approach as well as neutrosophic optimization approach. A numerical example is given to illustrate our NSO approach. The result shows that the NSO approach is very efficient in finding the best optimal solutions.
