About this book

This edited volume on challenges in structural and bridge engineering brings together contributions to this important area of engineering research. The volume presents findings and case studies on fundamental and applied aspects of structural engineering, applied to buildings, bridges and infrastructures in general, and heritage patrimony. The scope of the volume focuses on the application of advanced experimental and numerical techniques and new technologies to the built environment. The volume is based on the best contributions to the 2nd GeoMEast International Congress and Exhibition on Sustainable Civil Infrastructures, Egypt 2018 – The official international congress of the Soil-Structure Interaction Group in Egypt (SSIGE).

About the authors

Hugo Rodrigues is Senior Lecturer at the School of Technology and Management, Polytechnic Institute of Leiria, Portugal, teaching several topics related with Structural Analysis, Building Pathology and Rehabilitation. He received his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Aveiro in 2012. His experience in Seismic analysis, having participated as a team member in research and development projects, specialized consultancy studies ordered by several public institutions and companies regarding the assessment of seismic risk. His major research interests are Building Rehabilitation, Structural Health Monitoring and Seismic Safety including experimental and numerical activities. Research member of the RIsks and Sustainability in Construction (RISCO). He has co-authored more than 150 publications in top-tier peer-reviewed journals and national and international conferences.
Fellow of the British Royal Academy of Engineering, Amr Elnashai is the Dean of Engineering at the Pennsylvania State University, and the Harold and Inge Marcus Chair of Engineering. He was previously head of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA and the Bill and Elaine Hall endowed professor in the same department. He was Director of the NSF multi-institution interdisciplinary Mid-America Earthquake Center (2004-2009). He was also Director of the NSF Network for Earthquake Engineering Simulations (NEES) Laboratory at Illinois (2002-2009). Amr obtained his Bachelor of Science degree from Cairo University, followed by M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from Imperial College, University of London. Before joining the University of Illinois in June 2001, Amr was Professor of Earthquake Engineering and Head of Division at Imperial College (1985-2001). He has been Visiting Professor at the University of Surrey, UK, since 1997. Other visiting professor appointments include the University of Tokyo, the University of Southern California, and the European School for Advanced Studies in Reduction of Seismic Risk, Italy.
