Abstract In this paper we will make an approach to solve single objective structural model using parameterized p-norm based fuzzy Geometric Programming technique. A structural design model in fuzzy environment has been developed. Here pnorm based generalised triangular fuzzy number (GTFN) is considered as fuzzy parameter so that the decision maker can take advantage of no-exact parameter. Generalised triangular p-norm is discussed with their basic properties and some special cases. In this structural model formulation, the objective function is the weight of the truss; the design variables are the cross-sections of the truss members; the constraints are the stresses in members. A classical truss optimization example is presented here in to demonstrate the efficiency of our proposed optimization approach. The test problem includes a two-bar planar truss subjected to a single load condition. This approximation approach is used to solve this single-objective structural optimization model. The model is illustrated with numerical examples.
