Computational Intelligence in Civil and Hydraulic Engineering

Call for Papers

Computational intelligence (CI) is a set of nature-inspired computational methodologies and approaches to address complex problems of the real-world applications to which traditional methodologies and approaches are ineffective or infeasible. CI methods and techniques, including neural networks, evolutionary computation, and fuzzy logic systems, have rapidly evolved over the last decades, and they have already been applied in various fields of civil and hydraulic engineering.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to research on applications of computational intelligence approaches to solve real-world infrastructure engineering problems. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Methodologies
    • Evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence
    • Neural networks, support vector machines
    • Fuzzy logic and fuzzy systems
    • Hybrid algorithms
  • Domains of CI applications
    • Civil and hydraulic engineering
    • Geotechnical engineering
    • Transportation engineering
    • Structural design, diagnostics, health monitoring
