Long-Term Performance of Civil Engineering Structures and Materials

This issue is now closed for submissions.

Description

Civil engineering structures and infrastructures, e.g., buildings, bridges, dams, nuclear power plants, geological waste disposals, underground tunnels, etc., are essential facilities and assets that serve the world. However, these structures are normally subjected to threats from environmental degradation and their performance and functionality evolve over time.

Understanding the long-term behaviour of these structures and materials in civil engineering has been an important but challenging topic. In particular, under the pressure of climate change, new knowledge is urgently required for actively controlling the performance evolution in light of safety, stability, and sustainability for civil engineering development.

This Special Issue aims to cover recent research in understanding the long-term performance of civil engineering structures and materials, durability problems in civil engineering, and deterioration of cement-based materials and rock, including their reliability, safety, and whole-life management. The Issue is focused on, but not limited to, the new experimental methods, in-situ monitoring/testing methods, theoretical models, and computational methods with respect to corrosion of steel bar and anchoring structures, carbonation of concrete, concrete and rock fracture, stability of structures for subsurface engineering, time-dependent reliability, molecular dynamics modelling, prevention of deterioration, and improving performance techniques. Original research and review articles are welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Durability of civil engineering structures
  • Reliability of civil engineering structures
  • Stability of geotechnical engineering structures
  • Deterioration of building materials
  • Corrosion of civil engineering structures
  • Carbonation of cement and concrete
  • Fracture mechanics and damage mechanics in civil engineering
  • Computational modelling and simulation
  • Monitoring the long-term performance of civil engineering structures and infrastructures
  • Whole-life management of civil engineering structures
  • Repair and retrofitting of civil engineering structures
