    Special Issue on Structural Engineering


    Structural engineering uses mechanical methods to analyze the internal forces and deformations of buildings (such as houses, bridges, dams, etc.) and structures (such as retaining walls, chimneys, frames, etc.) under various loads. By controlling the internal forces and deformations of structures, the purpose of ensuring the safety and reliability of structures in the construction process is achieved. Structural engineering is mainly a sub-division of civil engineering in which structural engineers are trained to understand, predict, and calculate the stability, strength and rigidity of built structures for buildings and non-building structures, to develop designs and supervise construction of projects on site.


    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring structural engineering. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Steel and concrete structural design
    • Steel structural engineering
    • Bridge engineering structure
    • Smart structure research
    • Structural vibration control
    • Study on seismic, wind and fire resistance of engineering structure
    • Structural health monitoring
    • Performance evaluation of engineering structure

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Structural Engineering” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
