The journal aims to encourage and enhance the role of mechanics and other disciplines as they relate to earthquake engineering by providing opportunities for the publication of the work of applied mathematicians, engineers and other applied scientists involved in solving problems closely related to the field of earthquake engineering and geotechnical earthquake engineering.
Emphasis is placed on new concepts and techniques and case histories are considered only if they enhance the presentation and understanding on new technical concepts associated with analysis.
Seismology and Geology relevant to earthquake engineering problems with emphasis on modeling and methodologies and consideration of their effects on the analysis and design of structures.
Wave propagation, wave scattering and dynamic crack propagation in soils and rocks under elastic or inelastic material behavior.
Dynamic constitutive behavior of materials.
Dynamic interaction problems (soil-structure interaction, fluid-structure interaction and tsunamis if only related to its geotechnical and structural systems).
Seismic analysis and design of steel and reinforced concrete structures, retaining walls, dams, slopes.
Effect of moving loads on bridges and pavements and vibration isolation in geotechnical structures.
Inverse problems, identification and structural health monitoring in earthquake engineering.
Instrumentation and experimental methods in earthquake engineering.
Applied mathematical methods and artificial intelligence for earthquake engineering analysis and design.
Performance-based seismic design of structures.
Probabilistic methods in earthquake engineering including risk analysis and reliability
Earthquake case histories and lessons learned from catastrophic ground motions.
Earthquake case histories and lessons learned from catastrophic ground motions only if they include modeling and geotechnical/structural analysis.
