Ultimate Load-Carrying Capacity of Structures

Description

Given that structural damage is primarily classified into two categories: strength deficiency and durability failure. It is essential to conduct an accurate evaluation of the load-bearing capacity and durability of the structure. Under complex service environments, such as earthquakes, strong winds, fires, explosions, and collisions, as well as in long-term corrosive environments where the load-bearing capacity and durability of structures are continuously degraded by material damage. The implications of structural collapse caused by inadequate load-bearing capacity and durability are devastating, resulting in significant socioeconomic losses and human fatalities.

Currently, information technology (e.g., the Internet, big data, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things) is rapidly growing and improving. Meanwhile, the demand for technology that ensures structural performance in extreme environmental and climatic conditions is increasing. Civil engineering structures are confronted with unprecedented challenges in terms of design, construction, operation, and maintenance, as well as disaster prevention and mitigation involving multiple hazards. Newer research is particularly required in assessing the ultimate load-bearing capacity and structural durability.

The aim of this Special Issue is to bring together original research and review articles discussing the ultimate load-carrying capacity and durability of structures in the field. We welcome submissions discussing structures that are harder to fall apart from strong winds, fires, explosions, and other environmental factors. Submissions should focus on one of these three issues: multi-hazard triggering and complicated environmental processes, disaster mechanisms, and post-disaster structure safety evaluation. Moreover, submissions should discuss the current advances in complex environmental impact analysis, structural load-bearing capacity and durability analysis, and the improvement of structural systems under multi-hazard effects.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Isolation structure in terms of seismic load capability
  • Strength design and bearing capacity of lateral force-resistant structures
  • Resilience design and bearing capacity of structures
  • Bearing capacity of assembly structure
  • Bearing capability of steel pipe concrete structures
  • Effect of explosions on structural bearing capacity
  • Durability of the assembly structure
  • Marine concrete construction in terms of endurance and erosion
  • Rigidity and failure mode of pile foundation and rock mass
  • Coupling of structural bearing capacity and durability
