Resilient structural systems

We are pleased to invite authors from the 26th Australasian Conference on the Mechanics of Structures and Materials (ACMSM26) to submit their extended version of conference papers to the special issue of Australian Journal of Structural Engineering under the theme of “resilient structural systems”.

The resilient structural system is an important component of modern society. The main principles are safety, sustainability, functionality, maintainability, and fast recovery after natural and/or manmade hazards.  A resilient structural system could effectively reduce or even avoid large economic losses due to downtime of the structures, e.g., following a strong earthquake.

The special issue addresses the challenges and emerging problems in research related to resilient structural systems under varying loadings, e.g., wind, traffic, tsunamis and earthquakes. Papers describing original theoretical investigation, new outcomes resulting from physical experiments, new material applications and new measuring methods are welcome. Potential topics include but are not limited to, analysis, modelling, control, and applications in research on resilient structures.

Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit their papers through the Editorial Manager. The introduction should clearly indicate the extended scientific contribution of the paper over the paper published in the conference proceedings of ACMSM26 and refer to this paper. It is expected that at least 60% of new content from the conference paper should be included in the journal paper submission.

Deadline for submission:  29/02/2024

Deadline for review: 15/04/2024

Deadline for revised submission: 15/05/2024

Deadline for approval final manuscript: 1/07/2024
