Advances in Dynamics of Building Structures
In the last decades, the dynamics of structures have drawn significant attention in the broad field of Civil Engineering, varying from linear and nonlinear dynamics, seismic engineering, and structural health monitoring up to soil/structure interactions.
It is our great pleasure to invite you to contribute to this topic, which is dedicated to academic researchers who wish to propose studies on the advanced dynamics of building structures, covering all points of view from the design and realization up to retrofitting process. This involves many preeminent aspects all contributing to the ultimate good performance of buildings under severe actions, including earthquakes, wind, blasts, and other destructive phenomena.
The subject, of great interest in the field of Civil Engineering, is strictly framed into the topical issue of secure societies within the priority innovation challenge of disaster resilience.
Particular attention is paid to the following aspects:
• Linear and nonlinear dynamics;
• Seismic engineering;
• Base isolation and seismic dampers;
• Passive and active control;
• Elastoplastic dynamics;
• Infill and cladding effects;
• Modal identification;
• Structural health monitoring and damage detection;
• Innovating materials for retrofitting;
• Soil–structure interaction;
• Wind effects and aeroelasticity;
• Tall and slender buildings;
• Blasts and impacts.
