Special Issue on Advanced Energy Analysis
Submission Date: 2017-09-29

In this century, energy is fundamental to all the major challenges and opportunities. Energy plays pivotal roles in food and water production, climate change, security, and social life. The importance of energy cannot be overemphasized, especially with the current world trend of development. Population growth, high-income earnings, and rural-urban migration are significant factors stressing the current energy stream in most countries; these factors are the drive for increasing energy mix and energy generation. Although most countries still rely on the traditional means of energy generation, some are now diverting resources to more sustainable energy sources with a positive impact on the environments. With all these incessant factors, the burgeoning concept of energy has become of crucial importance. This special issue aims to be a leading peer-reviewed platform for researchers from academia and industry to publish their latest empirical or theoretical original research pertinent to energy applications. Review papers providing critical overviews on the state of the art and the supplementary guidelines of energy research are also welcomed Potential topics include but are not limited to the following: Energy storage, conversion, and harvesting Optimizing energy/thermal systems Thermoeconomic analyses Waste heat recovery/pollution prevention Energy policy Desalination systems Authors can submit their manuscripts through the Manuscript Tracking System at Manuscript Due Friday, 29 September 2017 First Round of Reviews Friday, 22 December 2017 Publication Date Friday, 16 February 2018

Special Issue on Recent Findings and New Trends for Steel Connections: Design, Experimental Tests, Analysis, and Codification
Submission Date: 2017-12-01

This theme is very important in the field of steel structures. Within this last decade, prolific research activities have been carried out in the field of steel connections introducing a number of novel results on different topics. On the other hand, existing codes for structural design have been extensively used by designers and practitioners, thus showing the lack of and fallacies in the application of some requirements and confirming the need to update the codes. Hence, a better understanding of the behaviour of steel connections at the light of new research findings will enable designing more economical and innovative structures and ensuring the safety of steel structures without increasing the constructional costs. Original research articles as well as review articles on the topic of steel connections are welcome in this special issue. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following: Numerical and analytical studies Advanced design procedures Codification Novel types of connections and splices Special patents for detachable and deconstructible connections High performance steel and fasteners Special types of welds for civil application (e.g., stir welds, laser welds) Robustness of steel joints Seismic design of steel connections and relevant prequalification procedure Connections in tubular structures and pipelines Fire resistance of connections Blast resistance of connections Fatigue Connections in hybrid structures Authors can submit their manuscripts through the Manuscript Tracking System at Manuscript Due Friday, 1 December 2017 First Round of Reviews Friday, 23 February 2018 Publication Date Friday, 20 April 2018
