The metal construction market in Brazil has grown significantly over the past few years. The weight reductions and performance increase of mechanical pieces obtained by using optimization techniques are significant to the point that currently its use is critical to define that competitiveness of the metal-mechanical engineering industries, and its undeniable importance in reducing costs. The optimization applied in the mechanical part design consists of using computational methods for dimensions, shape or optimal topology of parts. This study aims to propose a study methodology to analyse the stress distribution thought the use of mathematical software and photoelasticity techniques, to propose a new structural profile, lighter and more efficient, which may be used as solution to overcome the current constructive limitations.
