Learn and functions in Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation comprises the lawsuits of the 5th foreign convention on Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation (SEMC 2013, Cape city, South Africa, 2-4 September 2013). Over 420 papers are featured. Many themes are coated, however the contributions will be visible to fall into one in every of 4 extensive issues of the convention, specifically: (i) structural mechanics (dynamics, vibration, seismic reaction, statics, bifurcation, buckling, balance, effect reaction, touch mechanics, fluid-structure interplay, soil-structure interplay, etc); (ii) mechanics of fabrics (elasticity, plasticity, fracture, harm, fatigue, creep, shrinkage, etc); (iii) modelling and trying out (finite-element modelling, numerical tools, numerical simulations, experimental tools, experimental testing); (iv) structural-engineering perform (planning, research, layout, development, upkeep, fix, retrofitting, decommissioning). not just do the concerns hide many varieties of engineering buildings (buildings, bridges, tunnels, towers, house frames, roofs, foundations, shells, plates, mechanical assemblies, etc), additionally they span a range of engineering fabrics starting from the normal to the unconventional: metal, concrete, bushes, masonry, aluminium, certain alloys, glass, composites, functionally-graded fabrics, clever fabrics, etc.

Two models of every paper can be found. the broadcast e-book beneficial properties 2-page models of the papers, meant to be concise yet sufficiently informative summaries of the entire papers. information should be visible within the complete papers, that are carried at the accompanying CD-ROM. examine and functions in Structural Engineering, Mechanics and Computation is of curiosity to civil, structural, mechanical, marine and aerospace engineers desirous about the modelling, research, layout, building and upkeep of engineering buildings. Researchers, practitioners and teachers in those discipines will locate the publication useful.

The SEMC overseas meetings, inaugurated in 2001, objective at bringing jointly from worldwide teachers, researchers and practitioners within the vast fields of structural mechanics, linked computation and structural engineering, to check fresh achievements within the development of data and realizing in those parts, proportion the most recent advancements, and handle the demanding situations that the current and the long run pose.

During the free-standing construction period, the Figure 1. Observed 1st Mode Vortex-Induced Vibration at the Trans-Tokyo Bay Bridge. Note the disappearance of a car in the circle (After Fujino & Yoshida 2002). pylons have low natural frequency and their bluff body would normally cause the out-of-plane VIV. Vibration could be excessive and obstruct the construction process, especially for pylons made of low-damped steel. Such vibration was observed during construction of Akashi-Kaikyo Bridge (Hata & Katsumi 1998), the Kurushima-Kaikyo Bridges (Suzuki et al.

The VIV is also commonly observed on the longspan bridge pylons, especially during construction. During the free-standing construction period, the Figure 1.

Vibration could be excessive and obstruct the construction process, especially for pylons made of low-damped steel.

While passive control strategies have been widely applied, active control strategies have yet to reach a mature state to be directly applied to solve long-span bridge vibration problems, which provides both challenges and opportunities for bridge researchers and engineers in the future. The recent advancement on computer technology has provided us with strong simulation tool to investigate vibration problems. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) technique, for example, has been developed and used extensively as a supplement in recent years.
