Aims and scope

Smart infrastructure and construction combines physical infrastructure assets and construction processes with digital technologies. The resulting smart infrastructure can influence and direct its delivery, use, maintenance and support by responding intelligently to changes in its environment. Benefits include improved design and whole-life performance, as well as greater efficiency, economy, adaptability, and sustainability in the way infrastructure is delivered and operated.

Smart Infrastructure and Construction journal provides a learned forum for documenting changes caused by the global adoption of emerging digital technology in the design, construction and management of infrastructure assets. These radical changes will lead to greater efficiency, economy, adaptability and sustainability in the way our infrastructure is delivered and operated.

The journal considers contributions including but not limited to: 

  • the application and development of smart and advanced materials
  • self-healing materials and structures
  • structural health monitoring with applications to civil infrastructures and their application frontiers
  • intelligent and integrated digital delivery
  • systems in infrastructure, construction and heritage assets
  • 3D-printed smart materials and their applications
  • additive manufacturing
  • computer-aided structural integrity
  • digital twins.

This journal will facilitate the development of a professional community of academics and practitioners to apply and adopt the technologies, concepts and solutions to deliver smarter infrastructure construction and management.
