Is to advance the research and practice in structural engineering through the application of computational methods. The Journal will publish original papers and educational articles of general value to the field that will bridge the gap between high-performance construction materials, large-scale engineering systems and advanced methods of analysis.

Scope of the journal

Includes papers on computer methods in the areas of structural engineering, civil engineering materials and problems concerned with multiple physical processes interacting at multiple spatial and temporal scales. The Journal is intended to be of interest and use to researches and practitioners in academic, governmental and industrial communities.

Objectives of the journal:

• Correct solution of actual sophisticated problems of mathematical modelling of the behavior of the unique buildings and structures, including:
- simulation of the interaction with the soil foundation works with the real properties, phased construction and the actual operating history;
- physical, geometrical and other types of nonlinearities in mathematical modelling of behavior structures and buildings (plasticity of metal, creep and cracking concrete, nonlinear rheology of soil, large displacements, interaction problems, and others);
- consideration of design and technological features of structures (sequence phased erection; sensitivity of buildings and structures, evaluation of the quality of constructive solutions from the perspective of the sensitivity of the stress-strain state of the facilities to deviations from the project);
- numerical modeling of wind flows and loads (mean and fluctuating component, the load on the facade design, pedestrian comfort, vortex resonance vibrations), the experimental verification of the calculations for wind effects;
- seismic analysis (with the use of accelerograms, wave effects and others);
- progressive collapse modelling with the real dynamic nonlinear effects of elastic-visco-plasticity and large movements;
- research and development of methods and algorithms for solving sophisticated computational problems;
