This will be the tenth in the international conference series on Advances in Steel Structures, with the first, second, third, sixth and ninth of the conferences series held in Hong Kong, fourth in Shanghai, fifth in Singapore, seventh in Nanjing and eighth in Portugal. As with the nine previous successful conferences, this conference is intended to provide a forum for researchers and professionals to discuss and disseminate recent advances in analysis, behaviour, design and construction of steel, aluminium, composite steel-concrete structures, assembled building with steel-structure and flexible barrier.


Papers related to all aspects of analysis, behaviour, design, fabrication and construction of steel, composite steel-concrete structures and flexible barrier are invited. The following topics are not exhaustive and papers that fall within the general theme of the conference will be considered for presentations and for publications in the conference proceedings and uploaded to web Selected papers will also be published in SCI journals International Journal of Advances in Steel Construction and International Journal of Structural Stability and Dynamics, which carry a mission of technology transfer and is widely circulated among the engineering and building professionals.


Steel Structures, Composite Construction, Flexible Barrier, Mixed Construction, Aluminium and Glass Structures, Cold-Formed Steel, Assembled Building with Steel-structure, Columns, Beams, Beam-Columns, Frames, Connections, Space Structures, Tall Buildings, Bridges, Cable Structures, Pre-tensioned Structural Systems, Curtain Walling, Scaffolding, Roof Cladding, Silos, Tanks, Pipelines, Offshore Platforms, Chimneys, Transmission Line Towers and Masts, Design Codes, Expert Systems, Structural Stability, Stability Design, Computational Methods, Advanced Analysis, Second-order Direct and Indirect Analysis, Non-linear Analysis, Performance-based Structural Design, Dynamics, Seismic-resistant Structures, Vibration Control, System Identification, Fatigue and Fracture, Corrosion, Fire Engineering, Structural Optimisation, Life-cycle Performance, Code and Standard Development.
