Contribution presents a tool for general optimization on the macro level of civil engineering structures that are subjected to dynamic phenomena. These phenomena are represented mainly by harmonic loads. Optimization process is based on communication between new script and widespread program for structural analysis including FEM solver. Communication is accomplished using Extensible Markup Language (XML). Very robust optimization method Simulated Annealing is used due to the requirement of a general optimization of dynamic problems. In the last part of contribution two optimizations of simple structures of different materials (reinforced concrete, steel) are performed. Longterm task of this wo rk is to put academic knowledge in the field of optimization into common practice of structural analysis.
