Special Issue in Applied Sciences: Structural Health Monitoring of Bridges
Interests: wind engineering; marine engineering; bridge engineering; operational modal analysis and system identification; finite element model updating; structural monitoring
Bridges have shaped the transport networks in human society for centuries. These structures are prone to natural hazards, and safety against wind action is a key design requirement in modern bridges, especially as the span and flexibility of the structure increase.
Wind engineering practice and research in bridge structures require a multidisciplinary approach at different stages, encompassing all, or a subset of the following: onsite wind characterization, wind tunnel testing, wind actions modeling, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations, non-heuristic design methods, and structural monitoring. The improved understanding of bridge performance under wind action enables the construction of cable-supported bridges reaching almost 2 km of main span, or the design of long-span floating bridges, just to mention a couple of examples.
This Special Issue welcomes submissions addressing cutting-edge practical applications, feasibility studies, and research in the above topics. The overall goal is to outline future trends in wind engineering applications in bridge design.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
