Construction process monitoring plays an important role in the construction of buildings, which determines the quality and durability of high-rise or large-span building structures. Meanwhile, structural damage identification can identify the internal damage of a building structure in the early stage, which can extend the service life and reduce the expense of maintenance and the cost of human resources. In the context of the development of high-rise buildings and skyscrapers, designers, engineers, construction crews, and maintenance staff must pay attention to the whole process that from construction to service.
The main aim of this Special Issue "Construction Process Monitoring and Structural Damage Identification for Buildings and Bridges" in Buildings is to provide a platform for the discussion of the major research challenges and achievements on the development of novel construction process monitoring strategies for improving the management efficiency of buildings under construction; innovative damage identification; and anomaly detection methods for accurately localizing and quantifying structural damage of buildings in serving an accurate and high-efficiency finite element model, which can update methods for building structures and structural analysis and condition assessment.
This Special Issue provides an integrated view of the problems associated with the achievement of health monitoring strategies for buildings under construction period and the trends in the development of structural damage identification methods for in-service buildings.
Prof. Minshui Huang warmly invites authors to submit their papers for potential inclusion in this Special Issue on structural health monitoring of buildings in the construction and operational period.

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.
