The structure of stiffened plate is widely used in engineering since 19th century and is currently used in many modern applications. When stiffened square plate was imposed to extremely high load, the thin plate structure will deform. This research is carried out to find the solution in optimizing the structure of stiffened square plate topographically. The structure of square plate is analysed by applying uniformly distributed load of 5 bar. Finite element analysis is carried out to identify the potential design in obtaining optimum solution in designing ultimate stiffened plate. Result shows that the performance of stiffened square plate structure can be improved approximately by 80% in terms of tension and compression using topography optimization of finite element analysis.
