Bulletin of Earthquake Engineering presents original, peer-reviewed papers on research related to the broad spectrum of earthquake engineering. The journal offers a forum for presentation and discussion of such matters as European damaging earthquakes, new developments in earthquake regulations, and national policies applied after major seismic events, including strengthening of existing buildings.
Coverage includes seismic hazard studies and methods for mitigation of risk; earthquake source mechanism and strong motion characterization and their use for engineering applications; geological and geotechnical site conditions under earthquake excitations; cyclic behavior of soils; analysis and design of earth structures and foundations under seismic conditions; zonation and microzonation methodologies; earthquake scenarios and vulnerability assessments; earthquake codes and improvements, and much more.

This is the Official Publication of the European Association for Earthquake Engineering.

    Bulletin of Earthquake Engineering - the Official Publication of the European Association for Earthquake Engineering is devoted to original and interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed papers on theoretical and applied research related to the broad spectrum of earthquake engineering with similar emphasis on all topics. Earthquake risk mitigation requires close interaction between different scientific and operational disciplines encouraging and motivating joint research and implementation aiming to advance the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice.

    The journal provides a forum for the European Earthquake Engineering Community to present and discuss matters of major interest e.g. important European damaging earthquakes, new developments in earthquake regulations, national policies applied after the occurrence of major seismic events (for example strengthening of existing buildings, etc.).

    It is the incentive to keep the review period for scripts submitted to the journal to a minimum and to publish contributions in the form of original and review papers, or as short technical notes.

    Topics that fit to the broad spectrum of BEE include but are not necessarily restricted to:

    Seismic hazard studies and methods for mitigation of earthquake risks; Earthquake source mechanism and strong motion characterization and their use for engineering applications; Response and analysis of geological and geotechnical site conditions under earthquake excitations; Cyclic behaviour of soils; Response, analysis and design of earth structures and foundations under seismic conditions; Zonation and microzonation methodologies; Earthquake scenarios and vulnerability assessments; Earthquake codes and improvements; Response, analysis and design of all man-made structures under seismic conditions; Performance based seismic evaluation and design; Repair and strengthening; Damage assessments; Transportation and lifeline systems in seismic environments; Seismic response of historical monuments and structures; Seismic isolation, passive energy dissipation, active control of vibrations and other modern technologies for energy dissipation; Earthquake risk mitigation policies and methodologies.
