The shape optimization of structures by using simulated biological growth approaches is described in this paper. These approaches simulate the behavior of adaptive shapes of biological structures by growth and atrophy with respect to the natural loading applied. Improved design procedures are proposed to extend the capability of the approaches for shape optimization problems. Some numerical results are presented to demonstrate the usefulness of proposed methods.
