Evolutionary structural optimisation (ESO) has been introduced as an effective and easy to implement topology optimisation method, commonly applied to homogeneous isotropic material. This study investigates its feasibility in reinforced concrete (RC) structures and introduces a topology optimisation method for RC design problems, It accounts for the bimaterial orthotropic nature of RC by employing principal stress to drive optimisation, In addition to removing material of traditional ESO, the optimisation formulation in this study, also allows material to be added, optimising towards a fully stressed design. The optimisation method is applied to a couple of strut-and-tie type design problems and the results are displayed to validate the method.
