Structural analysis and seismic resilience in civil engineering have paid significant attention to the dynamics of engineering facilities and their social and economic functions, including essential functions of buildings and infrastructures. Modern society requires that structures exhibit higher levels of resilience, especially under earthquakes. The measure of resilience can adequately reflect a city’s capacity to withstand disasters. Quantitative results of seismic resilience assessments in the pre-earthquake environment can further support emergency response planning and seismic retrofits strategies. Thus, the seismic resilience of civil structures is gaining increasing interest as a special approach that goes beyond design codes. Resilience is the ability to absorb or avoid damage without experiencing complete failure, and should be the goal of design, maintenance and restoration of buildings and infrastructures. Mitigating structural damage to infrastructure under such seismic motions remains a major challenge. The continuous development of new materials, novel analysis techniques, design concepts, and numerical analysis tools presents promising advances that could help the research community and designers overcome design and implementation challenges in creating resilient structures.
This Special Issue is focused on recent advances in structural analysis and seismic resilience within civil engineering. We welcome articles that focus on the latest developments in innovative techniques and solutions for structural analysis, seismic resilience, seismic hazard resilient structures, performance-based design, and innovative structural systems for earthquake-resilient buildings. The collection will be of interest to academics and structural and construction engineers but also architects and other professionals involved in the building and construction fields. The submission of original research studies, review papers, and experimental and/or numerical investigations focused on the structural analysis and seismic resilience of buildings and infrastructures is warmly encouraged. Both new projects/applications and interventions on existing structural systems will be of interest for the Special Issue.
Contributions on the following topics are welcome. Potential topics that fall in the scope of the research topic include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Advanced composite materials for retrofitting
- Analysis of constructional materials under seismic loads
- Damage detection and condition assessment
- Damage limitation design and life-cycle sustainability
- Innovative practices in seismic-resilient structural design
- Innovative structural systems for damage minimization and recoverability after earthquakes
- Integrated techniques for the seismic retrofitting and strengthening
- New structural systems for resilient structures
- Performance-based seismic design of structures
- Seismic hazard and risk-mitigation measures
- Multi-level seismic performance of critical infrastructures under design-basis earthquakes and maximum-credible earthquakes
- Seismic resilience assessment
- Seismic safety assessment and retrofit of existing structures
- Seismic vulnerability assessment of structures
- Structural health monitoring
- Structural vibration control
