Vol. 18 No. 1 (2018): Special Issue: Structural Performance Assessment of Civil Infrastructure
The theme of this Special Issue of the Electronic Journal of Structural Engineering (EJSE) is “Structural Performance Assessment of Civil Infrastructure”. The importance of this theme has been exemplified through a sequence of research projects undertaken as a part of the Infrastructure Cluster of the Australian Indonesia Centre(AIC). Assets explored in this edition of the journal range from consideration of high rise reinforced concrete framed buildings, to bridges, marine structures, railway tracks, railway vehicles to utility assets such as water pipes. Numerousadvanced technologies have been explored that include consideration of the complex interpretation of dynamic evaluations to fibre optic sensors and a range of non-destructive testing techniques. The insights gained from these focussed research projects provides a platform for considering innovative approachesfor safe performance assessment of the structural life of infrastructure assets.
