Book Description

Applied Mechanics and Civil Engineering VI includes the contributions to the 6th International Conference on Applied Mechanics and Civil Engineering (AMCE 2016, Hong kong, China, 30-31 December 2016), and showcases the challenging developments in the areas of applied mechanics, civil engineering and associated engineering practice. The book covers a wide variety of topics:
- Applied mechanics and its applications in civil engineering;
- Bridge engineering;
- Underground engineering;
- Structural safety and reliability;
- Reinforced concrete (RC) structures;
- Rock mechanics and rock engineering;
- Geotechnical in-situ testing & monitoring;
- New construction materials and applications;
- Computational mechanics;
- Natural hazards and risk, and
- Water and hydraulic engineering.

Applied Mechanics and Civil Engineering VI will appeal to professionals and academics involved in the above mentioned areas, and it is expected that the book will stimulate new ideas, methods and applications in ongoing civil engineering advances.
