This paper presents basic ideas and terminology of structural optimization. The role of structural design optimization in the product design process is discussed. Nested and simultaneous formulations of structural optimization, as well as the basic geometric design parameterizations-size, shape, and quantity of materials are defined. The aim of the present investigation is to try the scope for optimization of the berth structure as per site conditions and assumptions made while analyzing and

Also the design variations are tabulated for each case. The present study is an attempt to observe the changes in design for different cases with respect to assumed model in which the pile founding level is same for all the piles. Three different cases has been modeled for which pile founding level has been varied which may arrive at site while construction and compared with the assumed model which has same founding level for all the piles. Case 1 model has only 25% of the pile founding in (-) 19.0m level and rest founding in (-) 24.0m level. Case 2 model has 50% of the pile founding in (-) 19.0m level and rest founding in (-) 24.0m level. Case 3 model has 75% of the pile founding in (-) 19.0m level and rest founding in (-) 24.0m level. For all the cases the forces and design has been compared with the basic assumed model in which all the piles are founded at (-)24.0m level. *Analysis of frames has been done using SAP 2000Ver 14.1.0
