Aims and Scope
The International Journal of Bridge Engineering (IJBE) is publishing papers on all aspects related to bridge engineering and soil-bridge interaction.
The International Journal of Bridge Engineering (IJBE) is an international, peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal that provides a unique publication forum for addressing challenges and new emerging problems in the study of bridges, their dynamics, as well as associated phenomena and processes. The journal publishes high quality contributions in all aspects of such systems, including analysis, modeling, control, and applications. Some of the most challenging problems in science and engineering require dealing with several different physical fields, the interaction of different parts of the system, and the interactions of various length and time scales, which may or may not be known a priori. The journal welcomes papers in all aspects of this development directed toward the study of behavior of bridges under static, dynamic and fatigue loads as well as soil-bridge interaction. This includes aspects related to the practice and profession of bridge engineering – soil-bridge interaction and also papers on architecture of bridges, bridge monitoring, design methods, fabrication and construction, new and high performance materials, seismic behavior, vehicle-bridge interaction, old bridges and maintenance, long-span bridges, geotechnical problems related to bridges, isolation and damping systems, etc. The IJBE accepts submissions of high-quality articles containing original research results (in the categories of Full Research Papers and Short Communication Letters), as well as Review articles of exceptional merit.
The International Journal of Bridge Engineering covers bridge engineering problems related to issues on the bridge superstructure and its interaction with the foundation. The main goal of IJBE is to cover this gap of research and design and to offer a forum for presentation of considerably significant structures.
