Call for Papers: Innovative Technologies of Structural System, Vibration Control, and Construction for Concrete High-rise Buildings

Innovative Technologies of Structural System, Vibration Control, and Construction for Concrete High-rise BuildingsIn Middle-East, China, Southeast Asia and other countries, attention to high-rise buildings is higher than ever. So far, high-rise buildings have been mostly constructed of steel structures or steel-concrete composite structures, and relatively high-rise buildings built with concrete have historically been rare. Although a few concrete high-rise buildings such as Burj Khalifa have recently been tried due to advances in high-strength concrete technologies, design and construction technologies of such buildings are still challenging issues. In order to realize a concrete high-rise building, innovative lateral force-resisting structure system suitable for concrete construction needs to be developed. It is necessary to develop alternative reinforced concrete or prestressed concrete systems, replacing conventional outrigger and belt trusses that are constructed as steel structures. Design of reinforcement details using BIM techniques and a multi-axis vibration control to reduce wind-induced vibrations are also important issues for economy and structural efficiency in concrete high-rise building design. In addition, the development of an integrated formwork and lift system for effective high-rise construction and construction management ultimately makes it possible to reduce construction time and cost. Thus, economical and safe concrete high-rise construction can be achieved when innovative structural systems, structural design, and construction technologies and methods are integrated. Clearly, innovative concrete technologies for high-rise construction provides many challenges and opportunities for researchers in the future.

Article Publishing Charges (APCs):
Because the special issue is published as a supplement, Article Processing Charges (APCs) should be paid by authors or by their research funder or institution. Upon acceptance of the paper, the authors will be required to pay the APCs of 1155 EUR.
If the corresponding author's institution participates in our open access membership program, some or all of the publication cost may be covered (more details available on the membership page). We routinely waive charges for authors from low-income countries. For other countries, article-processing charge waivers or discounts are granted on a case-by-case basis to authors with insufficient funds. Authors can request a waiver or discount during the submission process. For further details, see our article-processing charge page.

Submission Guidelines:
Authors from academia and industry working in the above research areas are invited to submit original manuscripts, which were not published previously and are not currently under review by other journals or conferences. All potential authors are requested to volunteer as reviewers in the peer‐review process for manuscripts submitted for this special issue. Manuscripts are requested to be written according to “the Instructions for Authors” available from the online submission page of IJCSM at All the manuscripts will be peer-reviewed following the IJCSM reviewing process. Notes: when submitting your manuscript, at the step of “Additional Information”, please choose this Thematic Series: “SI: Structural and Construction Technologies of Concrete Highrise Building”
