The limited available energy resources and it basic role in industrial development, employing the renewable sources of energy including wind, sun, water and etcetera as appropriate choice described. Renewable energies are not only economically advisable, but even can contribute to provide a cleaner approach of energy production and healthier environment. Hence, assessment of some old structures such as Middle East wind catcher that are established on the ground of clean energies and adapting them to the modern age demands with optimizing models is noteworthy. This work, by keeping focus on calculus of variation and analysis of the wind load on the wind catcher structures and present an optimal more resistant model. Optimization of the design parameters of wind catcher structures led to a hyperbolic model with least wind catcher surface and a higher stability and strength compared with the older structures of this category.
