Climate Change Effects on Structures and Infrastructures

Climate change has long been recognized as a serious phenomenon with severe implications for the planet, its inhabitants, and our built infrastructure. There is strong evidence that global warming-induced changing climate may significantly affect the long-term performance of structures and infrastructure facilities. Leveraged by the recent advances in our understanding on how climate change is likely to impact both the probability and magnitude of extreme events and on how climate change is likely to influence the hazard resistance of structures, numerous climate mitigation and adaptation strategies related to the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of built infrastructure have emerged.

This special issue aims to gather the most recent contributions involving the effect of climate change on infrastructures. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

-  Climate change effects on natural hazards

-  Climate change effects on structural behavior

-  Mitigation and adaptation of climate change

-  Impact of climatic variables upon bridges and infrastructures, (e.g., corrosion, earthquake related scour, flooding events, wind induced influences etc.)

-  Implementation of adequate tools and methods to adapt strategies for designing climate resilient civil structures

-  Standards development for climate resilient structures

Considering the characteristics of the journal, papers dealing with case studies and practical applications are especially welcome. Review articles describing the current state of the art in some related topic are also of interest.
