Special Issue Information

Aim and Scope

In today's complex world, Civil Engineering stands out as a vital field globally. Some of the major challenges faced by the world today include high building energy consumption, uncertain sea level estimation, rising soil and coastal erosion, inadequate water quality, dwindling groundwater resources, increasing traffic congestion, poor infrastructure resilience to disasters, deteriorating infrastructure, the necessity for improved mining and coal ash waste disposal methods, and low construction site safety. Civil engineers are often tasked with finding solutions to these challenges. Their work frequently involves creating intricate numerical or mathematical models to handle vast amounts of data and conducting repeated experimental studies. This makes civil engineering an ideal field for the application of computer-aided design and simulation technology.

This special issue is principally interested in manuscripts with the innovative strategies for solving in civil engineering grand challenges. A remarkable research activity involves reporting emerging and innovative numerical and experimental techniques are particularly encouraged to be submitted with identical priority on all fields of civil engineering challenges.

This Special Issue aims to collect both original research and review articles regarding applications of numerical and experimental approaches in revealing the civil engineering grand challenges:

  • Innovative Technologies and Materials
  • Sustainable and Green Infrastructure
  • Smart and Connected Infrastructure
  • Climate Change and Environmental Impact
  • Urban Development and Infrastructure
  • Transportation and Mobility
  • Geotechnical Engineering and Structural Engineering
  • Water Resources and Environmental Engineering


  • Challenges in Civil Engineering
  • Climate Change
  • Building Materials
  • Pollution
  • Sustainability
  • New Application of Materials
