The concepts of structural behavior analysis and optimization have started to be combined in the latest decades with an increasing trend also due to the need of often meeting performance targets, high structural complexity and costs. Nonetheless, existing approaches tackled this issue mainly in the domain of static calculations or referring to a specific type of optimization (e.g., size, topology or geometry). A new methodology is proposed to systematically perform different types of analysis (e.g., linear and nonlinear), by exploiting the Autodesk Robot Structural Analysis API through MATLAB. This approach involves the adoption of ActiveX technologies for the manipulation of COM (Component Object Model) objects in the MATLAB environment. A real-world example of linear dynamic modal analysis is also presented and a synthetic diagnostic of the structure is conducted based on the displacements resulting from the calculation.
