Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The seismic design of steel and (steel/concrete) composite structures has recently shown significant progress and momentous advances as a result of the convenience of vigorous methods of computational earthquake engineering, modern approaches of performance-based seismic design, and the production of a very large number of experimental tests. Nevertheless, despite these developments in the seismic design of steel and composite structures, there are many tasks yet to be clarified. This Special Issue shall provide experimental, analytical, and numerical studies on both steel and steel/concrete composite structures subjected to seismic loads and aim to cover the state of the art on both traditional and innovative design methods as well as to present research guidelines for the future. The Special Issue examines the following topics, without being limited to them: performance-based seismic design of steel or composite structures; improvements for earthquake-resistant code provisions; design of seismically isolated steel or composite structures; steel or composite buildings with intense irregularities; repair and rehabilitation of steel or composite structures; large-scale experimental tests; steel or composite bridges; high-rise steel or composite towers; special steel or composite structures such as tanks, silos, chimneys, etc.

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 papers will be 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. CivilEng is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
