I am pleased to invite you to submit a contribution to the Special Issue “Seismic Analysis of Multistoried Building”of the journal “Buildings”.
Nowdays structures are higher, lighter, and some of them have irregular configuration both in elevation and plan. These buildings need careful design as they become more susceptible to dynamic load activities such as earthquake. During this event, most structures have an inherent damping in them which results in some of the input seismic energy being dissipated, but a large amount of energy is absorbed by the structure, causing it to undergo several deformations and maybe even collapse. So, over the last year, there has been great interest in the design and use of seismic energy dissipation devices (passive, semi-active, active and/or hybrid).
In this Special Issue, original research articles and reviews are welcome. Contributions addressing design, assessment, numerical and experimental investigations, seismic analyses and seismic loss estimation of multistoried builbings are welcome.
I look forward to receiving your contributions.

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. Buildings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
