About this Research Topic
Resilient buildings and cities are in the center of common interests in modern academic communities for science and engineering. Resilience of buildings and cities against multidisciplinary risks is strongly related to the sustainability of buildings and cities in which reduction of damage during risks and fast recovery from the damage are key issues. Robustness, redundancy, resourcefulness and rapidity are four key factors for supporting the full realization of design and construction of resilient buildings and cities. This research topic welcomes cutting-edge research from various aspects, e.g. robustness of buildings and cities against earthquake risk, structural control and base-isolation for controlling damage risks, quantification of resilience measures, structural health monitoring, innovative structural engineering techniques for higher safety of buildings, resilience actions and tools at urban scale, etc.
Keywords: Resilience, Robustness, Earthquake risk, Structural control, Monitoring
