  • 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 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 […]

    Building Information Modeling processes enabled by Revit are leading to advances in the building industry. For more than twenty years, the building industry has used 3D models so that 2D production documents could be created automatically, or the related NC data could be sent directly to automatic production. Structural engineering plays a significant role in the project’s […]

  • Concrete Detailing
    This is the third blog post in a series that discusses the advantages of working on concrete projects in a BIM process for structural engineers. Before we dive in, let’s quickly review the four benefits of BIM for engineers: Combines the versatility of 2D documentation with the higher level of fidelity and accuracy of 3D […]
