This special issue will be produced in conjunction with the second international conference on constructed infrastructure facilities (maireinfra2) in Honolulu, August 16-19, 2023 and click maireinfra2023.org for more information. In the challenging context of climate change, there is a critical need to incorporate resiliency and sustainability in constructing and rehabilitating buildings and infrastructures. Civil infrastructures should be designed with a focus on resilient building materials while emphasizing sustainability aspects of an automated construction, evaluation, and maintenance operations. Resilient and sustainable infrastructures will mitigate the impacts of climate changes on infrastructure performance. It is also essential to preserve the existing infrastructures by developing innovative asset management systems with artificial intelligence and big data analysis techniques.
This Special Issue aims to publish high-quality research papers as well as state-of-the-art review articles that focus on resiliency and sustainability aspects in designing, building, and managing infrastructures. The papers in this Special Issue should be focused on various advances that have taken place worldwide in constructing and rehabilitating resilient and sustainable infrastructures.
I would like to invite you to contribute to the MDPI Infrastructures journal’s Special Issue on constructed infrastructure facilities. This special issue is very timely and would encompass but not be limited to the following emerging topics:
- Maintenance of asphalt, concrete, and block pavements;
- Rehabilitation of railroad tracks;
- Innovative pavement materials and design;
- Pavement management system (PMS);
- Automated pavement condition evaluations;
- Recycling of asphalt and concrete materials;
- Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC);
- Digital construction project delivery;
- Modular and accelerated construction;
- AI/drones/robotics for construction management;
- Bridge management system (BMS);
- Building information management (BIM);
- Traffic safety and intelligent transportation system (ITS);
- Safety in construction and remodeling;
- Disaster preparation and response;
- Life-cycle analysis and asset management systems;
- Sustainable pavements, bridges, and buildings;
- Sustainability in governments and industries.
The deadline for receiving your contributions will be August 31, 2023.
