Structural engineering is commonly considered a speciality within civil engineering, but it also includes any discipline which has a structural system. This field includes the analysis, design, plan, and research of structural components and structural systems. IJStructE is set up to report the relevant generic studies in this field.
Topics covered include
- Analytical/design methods
- Blast engineering
- Bridges, tall buildings
- Case studies
- Fire engineering
- Infrastructure engineering
- Innovative structures
- Life assessment/durability
- k0k construction materials
- Repairs, strengthening, maintenance
- Structure-fluid-soil interaction
- Structural health monitoring, safety, reliability
- Testing technologies
- Vibration, impact/structural dynamics
- Wind/earthquake engineering
IJStructE aims to provide an international forum for research in the structural engineering. Particularly welcome are those latest development in the theory, experimental and design method relate to engineering structures such as buildings, bridges, offshore platforms, etc.
IJStructE provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, and researchers working in the field of structural engineering, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.
IJStructE publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, book reviews, commentaries, and news. Papers on theory, experiment, design, etc., are published and it is expected that many papers will contain aspects of all three. Special Issues devoted to important topics in structural engineering will be occasionally published.

The almost ubiquitous construction material we know as concrete has high compressive strength but low tensile strength. In order to overcome this problem, reinforced concrete was developed. Unfortunately, reinforced concrete more readily succumbs to corrosion particularly from water ingress so there is a need to develop ways to improve the formulation of reinforced concrete and perhaps to develop additives that allow the self-healing of cracks and fissures that grow so that a structure might be saved from complete deterioration. Writing in the International Journal of Structural Engineering, a team from the National Institute of Technology, in Raipur, India, explain that there are two major causes of deterioration: carbonation-induced corrosion and chloride-induced corrosion [...]
