Call for MDPI Infrastructures – Special Issue “Inspection, Assessment and Retrofit of Transport Infrastructure”

In this Special Issue, we request high-quality original research articles focused on the state-of-the-art techniques and methods addressing the inspection, assessment, and upgrading of old bridge infrastructure. We welcome both theoretical and applied papers of high technical standard across various branches in construction sector, thus facilitating an awareness of techniques and methods applicable in bridges that may be relevant to other structures.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Advances in inspection, sensoring and structural health monitoring (SHM) methods and technologies for bridges;
  • Advances in assessment methods, e.g., load-carrying capacity evaluation of reinforced concrete (RC) structures with corrosion damage, fatigue life assessment in welded steel bridges, probabilistic structural integrity assessment;
  • New materials and techniques for strengthening and repair of existing bridges (e.g., application of shape memory alloys, advanced fiber-reinforced polymer composites);
  • Long-term behavior, environmental durability, and fire performance of strengthening and repair systems;
  • Design codes and guidelines;
  • Recent case studies (e.g., lessons learned);
  • Monitoring and field measurements on rehabilitated bridges;
  • Advances in management of maintenance works and planning, e.g., risk-informed asset management (RIAM).

Original submissions related to other types of structure relevant to focus areas of this special issue are also welcome.

Deadline: 15 April 2021
