Special Section on
Civil Engineering – Ongoing Technical Research. Part II

Download invitation to Civil Engineering – Ongoing Technical Research. Part II

The special section on “Civil Engineering – Ongoing Technical Research. Part I” was published in the “Bulletin of the Polish Academy of Sciences: Technical Sciences”, vol. 64 No. 4 / 2016 . This initiative met with considerable interest from both authors and readers, which is why an open call for submissions to Part II is announced.

Theme. Civil engineering as a discipline of applied science is always seeking for its place on the map of knowledge. Each of the papers included in this Special Section combines two components: science and engineering, balanced in various ways. One of the dilemmas of civil engineering is the following controversy: requirement of durability (>50 years) versus risk of progress. We need to ensure that a construction element meets the requirements not only at the time of testing, but also that it will be good enough after tens of years of service life. Therefore, we invite researchers working in this area to submit their papers presenting the latest results to this Special Section. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following topics:

• new technical research in civil engineering in cross-sectional perspective,
• philosophy of dedicated fields in civil engineering,
• materials and constructions.
