Aims and Scope

The Structural Engineering section of the journal Current Chinese Science publishes original research articles, letters, reviews/mini-reviews and guest edited thematic issues on academic research and engineering practice in structural engineering. Articles may be focused largely, but not exclusively, on contributions from China.


This section is not limited to a specific aspect of the field but is instead devoted to a wide range of sub fields in the field. Articles of interdisciplinary nature are particularly welcome. Submissions in the following structural engineering areas are of special interest to the readers of this journal:


  • • Aerospace structures
  • • Analytical, computational and experimental modeling and simulation of structures
  • • Building/civil engineering structures
  • • Composite structures
  • • Concrete structures
  • • Earthquake engineering structures
  • • FRP structures
  • • Infrastructure engineering
  • • Mechanical structures
  • • New structural systems
  • • Offshore structures
  • • Recycling of structural materials
  • • Steel structures
  • • Structural design
  • • Structural health monitoring
  • • Structural materials
  • • Structural maintenance/rehabilitation/repairing/strengthening
  • • Structural mechanics
  • • Structural tests
  • • Sustainable structures
  • • Timber structures
  • • Others
