    In this paper the problem of optimizing a distribution of carbon fiber content in hybrid glass/carbon fiber reinforced (GFRP/CFRP) structural elements of plane, statically determinate regular elastic truss structure is discussed. A modification of genetic algorithm combined with the method of mathematical induction is proposed. A criterion of structural materials cost minimization while satisfying elastic strength requirements is used as an optimality criterion.
