The notion of “smart structure” integrates promises of disaster resilience, generally incorporating the capacities for civil structures to anticipate, react, respond, and reorganize after being subjected to natural and human-made disturbances. Dealing with this, the emerging artificial intelligence (AI) and the state-of-the-art industrial technology (covering vibration control and structural health monitoring) are heralded as integrated means for enhancing resilience. With the rapid development of AI-enabled civil engineering, it appears that timely assessment, prediction, and improvement of urban resilience can be realized. Despite the critical progress, it remains challenging to promote research advances in theory, experiments, framework, and, above all, applications that are helpful to improve the safety of metropolitan areas by mitigating socio-economic losses in case of extreme disasters.
This Special Issue on “Next-Generation Intelligent and Resilient Structures” aims to bring together cutting-edge development in emerging AI technologies for resilient civil infrastructural systems. Further, recent developments in novel structural health monitoring, vibration control, and construction are of interest. This Special Issue welcomes original contributions containing fundamental research, case studies, opinion papers, and review articles. The desired topics include but are not limited to the following:
- AI in civil infrastructural systems;
- Emerging vibration control and isolation;
- Efficient design methods for optimal structural control;
- Seismic vulnerability assessment;
- Resilience upgrading technologies;
- AI-based structural health monitoring;
- Mechanical metamaterial.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Buildings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
