Sustainability of Concrete Bridges/Structures

About this Collection:
Sustainability is the most important keyword for human beings in this century. The global concern for climate change, global warming, and increasing pollution has made it imperative for everyone, including engineers, to devise green strategies for a sustainable future. To maintain the current global environment on a long-term basis, it is essential that all industries take the necessary action to ensure its sustainability. The concrete bridge/structures construction is engaged in developing infrastructure essential for human socioeconomic activities while consuming an enormous amount of materials resources, water, and energy. We must exert efforts to realize a sustainable society by changing our current technological system.

The issue includes all the subjects focusing on sustainable concrete materials, smart strategies in the construction industry, performance of existing bridge/structures or structural elements, lifecycle assessment on concrete bridge/structures, lifetime extension, and performance enhancement approaches for existing concrete bridge/structures.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies, including those pertaining to Collections. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.
