Description / Abstract:

The collection covers a broad spectrum of topics related to civil infrastructure engineering, which range from structural engineering, bridge engineering, geotechnical engineering, wind engineering, tunnels, subways and underground facilities, seismic engineering and disaster prevention and mitigation and protection engineering. The volume provided an excellent opportunity to discuss the challenges we are facing with our ever ageing civil infrastructure.</p>*<p>Review from Book News Inc.: Nine keynote addresses are among the 231 papers that document the first in a projected series of conferences. Among the keynote topics are effects of truck impacts on bridge piers, evaluating the performance of existing bridges under vehicle dynamic effects, adaptive negative stiffness as a new structural modification approach for seismic protection, engineered wood in cold climate with application to monitoring a new Swedish suspension bridge, and the parametric identification of nonlinear devices for seismic protection using soft computing techniques. Other areas considered include monitoring and controlling the construction of large-scale structures, bridge and road engineering and wind engineering, masonry and timber structures and historical structures, preventing disaster and mitigating hazard for civil infrastructures, and advanced structural experimental techniques and sensing techniques. The two volumes are paged and indexed together.
