A new algorithm called Jaya is presented for the design of the braced dome structures by taking into account the objective function as least weight with frequency constraints. The size optimization is considered for the 3D truss elements. The performance of Jaya algorithm is presented through benchmark 120-bar braced dome. This study indicated that the proposed technique is a powerful technique for the optimal design of domes with the constrained problem. The developed computer program for the analysis and optimization of the dome structure and the optimization algorithm for Jaya are coded in MATLAB.
