Robot Structural Analysis

  • What’s New
    Robot Structural Analysis Professional 2021 introduces sequential loading, improves wind load simulations, and works better with Revit.

  • Structural Analysis
    It was almost 40 years ago when structural analysis methods and technologies were subject to a major innovation: enabled by the personal computer. It became widely available, as promoted on engineering diplomas of those graduating in leading universities, that engineers began adopting commercial software to a large degree, benefiting from graphical interfaces of the MS […]

    Knowing how to use Microsoft® Office Excel® is one of the essential skills and important tools for structural engineers when designing structures. At the end of the day, engineers rely on the calculation engines they use, so Excel is a great way to ‘gut check’ the output from their analysis and design solutions and to […]

    In the Part 1 of this topic I demonstrated how to leverage the portal frame Dynamo geometry to create its analytical model representation in Robot Structural Analysis Professional.  I also introduced the Structural Analysis for Dynamo package that enables parametric modeling and structural analysis workflows in Dynamo and Robot Structural Analysis Professional. I ended the […]

    In my previous post I showed you how to create a fully parametrized portal frame geometry in the Dynamo environment. After the Dynamo geometry is set, you can create the analytical model representation of this geometry in the Robot Structural Analysis Professional environment. The Structural Analysis for Dynamo package enables parametric modeling and structural analysis […]

    Now that the season of summer vacations is almost over, and everyone is returning to school and work, we have great news to energize you for a productive Fall. As the Robot Structural Analysis team, we want to show you our commitment to improving your experience with Robot Structural Analysis software. We are working hard […]

  • Computational Design
    The visual programming interface of Dynamo for Revit is enabling structural engineers with the tools to build structural models with minimal energy and make their own structural design tools. In the early stages of the structural design structural engineers and designers can use Dynamo for Revit to interpret the architectural model and explore ways to […]

  • Engineering and Design
    Structural engineers are using BIM to improve their design workflows and enhance collaboration with other stakeholders on projects. However, when it comes to performing analysis and design, structural engineers often face the following challenges: Little time to explore the best design option due to the use of fragmented analysis and design methods Insufficient coordination between […]

    “Structural Engineering – open that!” It was exciting to hear the droid K-2 say these words in the film Star Wars Rogue One last winter. If you recall, this was the scene where Jyn and Cassian were frantically searching for the Death Star plans at the Citadel Tower’s data vault.  As a former practicing structural […]
