Call for Papers: Special Issue on High Performance Structures – Building Structures and materials

Deadline for Paper Submission: May 31, 2018

Engineering is an international peer-reviewed academic journal sponsored by Chinese Academy of Engineering. The journal is published on a bimonthly basis in English. Online versions are available through

Currently, the civil engineering has made a significant contribution to the economic and social development of all countries in the world, but it still faces many challenges such as: serious non-renewable resources are consumed in construction, the environment is polluted, the sustainability of civil engineering facilities is low, and the performance recovery capability after huge disasters is insufficient. Therefore, developing and applying high-performance building structures and high-performance materials in civil engineering and enhancing the sustainability and recoverability of civil engineering facilities are the necessary ways to realize the green, industrialized and sustainable development of civil engineering. This special issue will focus on the future development directions such as high-performance sustainable civil engineering structures, life cycle design of engineering structures, performance of engineering structure against multiple disasters, and new building materials, mainly discussing how to develop and apply high-performance building structures and high-performance materials in civil engineering, for improving the sustainability and recoverability of civil engineering facilities.
