The heuristic methods are a powerful tool for the optimization of complex problems. The genetic algorithms are the heuristic methods of larger prominence in the optimization of enginnergin problems. This paper presents the implementation and the test of a program in C++ language for the optimization of bolted connections in wood members. For the wood, the EUROCODE 5 design method were used and for the steel plates were used EUROCODE 3. Twelve simulations were accomplished and the program presented good convergence for connections using steel plates as connection element.
