We are pleased to invite you for a contribution to the Special Issue "Structural Analysis for Earthquake-Resistant Design of Buildings".
Earthquake-resistant buildings are generally designed using elastic analysis methods and simplified numerical models. However, it is not surprising that buildings experience significant inelastic behavior if subjected to medium-strong earthquakes. Modern performance-based design methods require detailed structural analysis to investigate the actual behaviour of structures under such conditions. The advancements in computational methods and the increasing availability of experimental test data allow one to perform an advanced structural analysis in order to assess the structural response beyond the elastic range, including the effects of strength and stiffness degradation, infill walls, large displacements, and all inelastic phenomena that could affect the seismic response of a building up to collapse.
In light of these considerations, this Special Issue aims at stimulating the exchange of ideas and knowledge on recent advances in structural analysis methods and numerical modelling approaches for the seismic design and assessment of buildings, involving fully deterministic and probabilistic applications/frameworks. Original contributions containing fundamental and applied research, case studies, or state of the art are encouraged to be submitted to the Special Issue.

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 1800 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.
