Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will publish papers by authors who presented at the ICEUBI2019—International Congress on Engineering—Engineering for Evolution held by the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Beira Interior, located in Covilhã, Portugal, on November 27–29, 2019. The event aims to promote the contribution and concerns of engineering with regard to human society and create a preview of our collective future, ensuring contact between researchers and practitioners from different fields of engineering, and permit the dissemination of research, innovation, and development within the various sectors of economic activity. A set of articles were published in a Special Issue of the Open Engineering Journal, Millenium Journal, and in the Case Studies on Transport Problems Journal (ELSEVIER). In this edition, we want to reinforce the internationalization of the event and raise its standard of quality by considering this Special Issue, following materials topics on:

  • Aeronautics and astronautics: materials and structures, aircraft, and spacecraft engineering;
  • Architecture: construction, urban planning studies, projects, and plans;
  • Informatics: computer architecture, human interaction with the computer, computer graphics and visual, and smart systems;
  • Textile science and technology: fashion design, biotechnology, technological materials and nonconventional or high technology materials, and advanced materials and processing;
  • Civil engineering: structures and materials, geotechnics, transportation, sustainability and green structures, bridges, dams and special structures, foundations and modeling of the land, building materials, and rehabilitation of buildings;
  • Electrotechnical and mechanical engineering: industrial design, bioengineering, electrotechnology, CAD/CAM, prototyping and product design, mechanics of materials, and mechanical systems.
