The Twelfth International Conference
on Computational Structures Technology
Naples, Italy
2-5 September 2014
Special Session
Computational Earthquake Engineering
organized by
Dr A. Sextos
Aristotle University
Session Aims and Scope
This special session focuses on recent advances in Computational Earthquake Engineering and Structural Dynamics. More specifically, it will encourage contributions related to the mitigation of seismic risk, the design and assessment of earthquake resistant buildings and bridges, the assessment of special and monumental structures, system identification and structural health monitoring, performance-based engineering, seismic isolation and control of structures, dynamic soil-structure interaction, strong ground motion selection and scaling as well as seismic wave propagation through the soil media. Papers related to new software applications, web-based engineering tools, frameworks for hybrid simulation and distributed computing, knowledge-based & expert systems, finite element programs, numerical analysis pre- and post- processing front-ends, data and metadata dissemination and management systems, high performance, parallel and cloud computing schemes, applications for mobile devices and tablets as well as GIS-based visualization tools are also welcome.

It is envisioned that this special session will constitute an interesting forum for scientists using state-of-the-art computational methods and tools for Earthquake Engineering purposes.
