American Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences

Description

The objective of this special issue is to present advances and emerging cross-disciplinary approaches in the field of structural mechanics, computational mechanics, optimization techniques, engineering structures, structural design, earthquake engineering, spatial structures, materials science and many more. We aim to provide a forum for researchers across disciplines as well as for practicing engineers in various fields within structural engineering as proposed below.

The editors would like to encourage studies that outline the general development of the main disciplines of engineering structures as we know them today. Articles discussing methodologies and reviews of the current state of knowledge, and opportunities for future research are especially welcome. In particular, this issue intends to provide a forum for a productive exchange of ideas and interaction among diverse technical and scientific fields such as structural, civil, mechanical, aeronautical as well as applied mathematics, statistics and computer science.

This issue will publish high-quality reviews and research articles. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Full experimental and methodological details, as applicable, must be provided, and the special issue will be supported by American Journal of Engineering and Applied Sciences (http://thescipub.com/journals/ajeas). All submissions must adhere to the AJEAS journal's format requirements.
