Isogeometric analysis of coupled thermo-elastodynamic problems under cyclic thermal shock

The isogeometric analysis (IGA) method was extended for the solution of the coupled thermoelastodynamic equations. The dimensionless formulation was accepted in discretization of the uncoupled and coupled thermoelasticity equations and the …

Evaluating the material strength from fracture angle under uniaxial loading

The most common experimental methods of measuring material strength are the uniaxial compressive and tensile tests. Generally, shearing fracture model occurs in both the tests. Compressive strength is higher than tensile strength for a material.

A three-dimensional two-level gradient smoothing meshfree method for rainfall induced landslide simulations

A three-dimensional two-level gradient smoothing meshfree method is presented for rainfall induced landslide simulations. The two-level gradient smoothing for meshfree shape function is elaborated in the three-dimensional Lagrangian setting with …

Empirical models and design codes in prediction of modulus of elasticity of concrete

Modulus of Elasticity (MOE) is a key parameter in reinforced concrete design. It represents the stressstrain relationship in the elastic range and is used in the prediction of concrete structures. Out of range estimation of MOE in the existing …

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.
