5th International conference on structural engineering, mechanics and computation

Type:
Meeting or Conference
Organizer:
University of Cape Town (UCT)
Date:
02-04 Sep 2013
Location:
South Africa (Cape Town)

In the tradition of the previous conferences, SEMC 2013 will aim at bringing together from around the world academics, researchers and practitioners in the broad fields of structural mechanics, associated computation and structural engineering, to review recent achievements in the advancement of knowledge and understanding in these areas, share the latest developments, and address the challenges that the present and the future pose. The cross fertilisation between theory and practice that is anticipated will be expected to

  • promote a better understanding of structural behaviour,
  • facilitate more realistic material and structural modelling,
  • lead to the development of more appropriate computational schemes, and
  • enhance the confidence of structural-engineering practice.

Specific DRR topics will include:

  • Design for Earthquake Resistance
  • Design for Wind and Storm Resistance
  • Design for Fire Resistance
  • Design for Blast and Impact Resistance
  • Loadings on Structures and Design Codes
  • Case Studies of Structural Failures
  • Damage Mechanics, Fracture and Fatigue
  • Structural Stability and Buckling Phenomena
  • Towers and Industrial Structures
  • Marine and Dam Structures
  • Structural Foundations and Tunnels
  • Structural Materials
  • Durability and Long-Term Performance of Structures
  • Structural Safety and Reliability
  • Structural Risk Analysis
  • Structural Assessment and Damage Detection
