The contribution deals with optimal topology design of civil structures in dynamics. Earthquake loading is considered. The earthquake excitation has multi-frequency content. The dynamic input is defined on the base of Eurocode 8. The push-over curve is applied in dynamic analysis. The practice in civil engineering requires cost minimization and fulfillment the safety conditions. The optimal topology design of structure loaded by earthquake is focused. The topology problem is defined as a material distribution problem. Densities in discretized elements of the structure are the variables of the optimization. The relationship between mass and the stiffness is defined on the base of the SIMP method. The objective of the structural optimization is the minimum weight of the structure. The design space is constrained by conditions based on natural frequencies and on the maximum displacement defined on the push-over curve.
