About this journal

Frontiers of Structural and Civil Engineering is an international journal that publishes original research papers, review articles and case studies related to civil and structural engineering. Topics include but are not limited to the latest developments in building and bridge structures, geotechnical engineering, hydraulic engineering, coastal engineering, and transport engineering. Case studies that demonstrate the successful applications of cutting-edge research technologies are welcome. The journal also promotes and publishes interdisciplinary research and applications connecting civil engineering and other disciplines, such as bio-, info-, nano- and social sciences and technology. Manuscripts submitted for publication will be subject to a stringent peer review.

Originally established in 2007 as Frontiers of Architecture and Civil Engineering in China, the journal was renamed Frontiers of Structural and Civil Engineering in 2011.The journal is supported by the Chinese Academy of Engineering.
