This research is related to design a trapezoidal cross section beam for minimum area or minimum material requirement and investigation of design parameters variations with different conditions. Genetic algorithm is used to evaluate optimum results at varying load and length conditions for cantilever beam at pointed load at its end and under constraint of limited deflection. Trapezoidal section variation makes different sections like square, rectangular and triangle so this is selected. An easy approach is observed to take a section for minimum area.
