This paper presents a mathematical model for Layout optimization of structure with discrete variables. The optimization procedure is composed of two kinds of sub-procedures of optimization: the topological optimization and the shape optimization. In each one, a comprehensive algorithm is used to treat the problem. The two kinds of optimization procedures are used in turn until convergence appears. After the dimension of the structure is reduced, the delimiting combinatorial algorithm is used to search for the better objective value. A couple of classical examples are presented to show the efficiency of the method. Numerical results indicate that the method is efficient and the optimal results are satisfactory.
