Dear Colleague,

growing interest towards the possibility of modelling and simulating both the durability and the resiliency of both traditional and innovative materials is evident. Meanwhile, the community of building simulations is increasingly aware of the importance of taking into account during simulations both natural hazards and climate change implications.

The main aim of this Special Issue is to investigate insights of recent studies on modelling and simulating the durability of building materials and resiliency in the face of uncertainties, natural hazards, and climate change.

Topics of interest

This topical issue on “Simulating building materials durability and resiliency” addresses the following areas:

  • Probabilistic approaches in simulating building material durability;
  • Modelling approaches for material weathering and aging;
  • Multi-criteria analysis and modelling for assessing building envelopes;
  • Uncertainties in modelling natural hazards and climate change for building simulations.

Submission Guidelines


Only original manuscripts can be submitted, according to the ‘Guide for Authors’ published on the JBPS website https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tbps. As regards the online submission system of JBPS, the authors are invited to follow the link “Submit your Paper”, located in the main page of the Journal website.

Please mention the name of the Special Issue in your cover letter. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed in accordance with the established policies and procedures of the journal. The final papers will be selected for publication depending on the results of the peer review process and the reviews of the Guest Editors.
