Papers related to all aspects of analysis, behaviour, design, fabrication and construction of steel and composite steel-concrete and flexible barrier structures are invited. 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 http://icass2020.com/ . 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. The official language is English.
Topics include but not limited to:
Structural systems: space structures, fabricated structures, cable membrane structures, deployable structures, frame structures, high-rise buildings, bridges, composite structures, landslides flexible barriers, MiC, imperfect structures, etc.
Members: columns, beams, cables, components connections, etc.
Materials: cold-formed steel, low yielding point steel, stainless steel, high-performance steel, new metallic materials, etc.
Analysis: computational theories, non-linear analysis, stability, second-order elastic and plastic analysis, time-history analysis, form finding, dynamics analysis, structural fatigue, fire and corrosion prevention, earthquake engineering, progressive collapse, etc.
Structural design: conceptual design and methodology, codes and standards, performance-based structural design, etc.
Others: curtain wall, silos, pipelines, offshore platforms, tower structures, reinforcement and transformation of steel structures, etc.
