This annotated bibliographic review presents articles regarding optimization of structures plates, shells, frames, beams, columns, panels, etc. . A general problem in the theory of structures is to determine the configuration which has minimum weight from all those which can support the prescribed loads. Some progress has been made in the solution of this problem, and it was the purpose of the search to determine the present state of the theory. The literature contains great amounts of material of a less general nature on minimum weight design of specific structures, and the references cited for these are incidental and not complete. The major effort was to find references that contributed to the solution of the general problem stated above.
