Special Issue "Vibration Serviceability of Civil Engineering Structures"
A special issue of Vibration (ISSN 2571-631X).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2019).
College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, University of Exeter, Exeter EX4 4QF, UK
Interests: structural engineering; light-weight structures; vibration serviceability; dynamic loading by humans; human-structure interaction; whole body vibration exposure in civil engineering structures
I would like to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue and create impact on developing the Vibration as a medium for discussing and advancing the work in our research field.
Vibration serviceability limit state is increasingly governing the design of contemporary, typically light-weight, lightly-damped and low-frequency, civil engineering structures. To successfully address this challenge, it is necessary to develop a better understanding of the uncertainties and variabilities in dynamic loading, structure models, and user response to (and interaction with) vibrating structures.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present state-of-the-art experimental and numerical research in vibration serviceability of civil engineering structures. The topics to be covered include:
- Modelling dynamic loading scenarios and resulting forces, especially those generated by human actions;
- Characterizing the dynamics of civil engineering structures;
- Quantifying influence of uncertainties and/or variabilities in loading and structure properties on the vibration response;
- Developing models for human–human and human–structure interactions;
- Establishing criteria for vibration receivers (such as humans and vibration sensitive facilities).
Contributions related to development of novel experimental techniques relevant for the advancement of any stage of vibration serviceability evaluation and characterizations of human response to (not only) vibration in a multi-sensory environment are particularly welcome.
Vibration (ISSN 2571-631X) is dedicated to the scientifically-rigorous dissemination of peer-reviewed publications pertinent to vibration science and engineering. All accepted manuscripts submitted in 2018 will be published in open access, with article processing charges (APCs) waived.

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. Vibration 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.
