The Third International Conference
on Soft Computing Technology in
Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering
Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy
3-6 September 2013
CSC2013-S08
Computational Intelligence in Structural Mechanics
organised by Dr S. Freitag
Ruhr University Bochum, Germany, Prof. W. Graf
Technische Universität Dresden, Germany,
Prof. G. Meschke
Ruhr University Bochum, Germany,
and Prof. R.L. Muhanna, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA
Session Aims and Scope
Computational Intelligence can be applied to several fields in Structural Engineering, e.g. prediction of structural responses, reliability assessment, sensitivity analysis, structural health monitoring, computational steering, structural control, etc. This special session is focused on the presentation of original papers using Computational Intelligence in Structural Mechanics e.g. for surrogate modelling, parameter identification, uncertainty modelling and numerical analysis. Topics of particular interest include but are not limited to soft computing methods such as artificial neural networks, evolutionary computation, swarm intelligence, stochastic and non-stochastic approaches. Contributions on theoretical works in Structural Mechanics as well as practical applications are welcome.
