Simulating Durability and Resiliency of Building Materials in the face of Uncertainties, Natural Hazards, and Climate Change

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.

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

  • 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.
