Modern Trends in Research on Steel, Aluminium and Composite Structures
PROCEEDINGS OF THE XIV INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON METAL STRUCTURES (ICMS2021), POZNAŃ, POLAND, 16-18 JUNE 2021
Modern Trends in Research on Steel, Aluminium and Composite Structures includes papers presented at the 14th International Conference on Metal Structures 2021 (ICMS 2021, Poznań, Poland, 16-18 June 2021). The 14th ICMS summarised a few years’ theoretical, numerical and experimental research on steel, aluminium and composite structures, and presented new concepts.
This book contains six plenary lectures and all the individual papers presented during the Conference. Seven plenary lectures were presented at the Conference, including "Research developments on glass structures under extreme loads", Parhp3D – The parallel MPI/openMPI implementation of the 3D hp-adaptive FE code", "Design of beam-to-column steel-concrete composite joints: from Eurocodes and beyond", "Stainless steel structures – research, codification and practice", "Testing, modelling and design of bolted joints – effect of size, structural properties, integrity and robustness", "Design of hybrid beam-to-column joints between RHS tubular columns and I-section beams" and "Selected aspects of designing the cold-formed steel structures".
The individual contributions delivered by authors covered a wide variety of topics:
– Advanced analysis and direct methods of design,
– Cold-formed elements and structures,
– Composite structures,
– Engineering structures,
– Joints and connections,
– Structural stability and integrity,
– Structural steel, metallurgy, durability and behaviour in fire.
Modern Trends in Research on Steel, Aluminium and Composite Structures is a useful reference source for academic researchers, graduate students as well as designers and fabricators.

Marian Giżejowski holds a Full Professor position at the Faculty of Civil Engineering of the Warsaw University of Technology in Poland. His research and lecturing experience includes the position of Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Sydney in 1983, the Senior Lecturer position at the University of Zimbabwe 1988-1994 and the Associate Professor position at the University of Botswana 2001-2005. He has been invited to become the member of Advisory Boards and Scientific Committees of several international conferences, and to prepare plenary keynote lectures at the conferences taken place worldwide. He has been the author or co-author of several books as well as over 300 journal and conference papers. His research interest includes different aspects of structural stability, resistance assessment and codification, as well as nonlinear finite element analysis and design of steel, steel-concrete and aluminium structures. Recent activities are towards a progress in the formulation of general method stability verification procedures for the application in Eurocodes and the unification of resistance partial factors for their application in different design situations.
Aleksander Kozłowski is a full professor in Civil Engineering in Rzeszów University of Technology, Poland. He previously worked as a visiting professor in Univesidade da Beira Interior, Covilha, Portugal. He has been invited to become the member of Advisory Boards and Scientific Committees of several international conferences, e.g. Eurosteel, and took part in few European Projects, such as Cost, Robust, Android, Affordable House, Purest and FailNoMore. He is the author or co-author of over 250 journal and conference papers and 10 technical books. He is involved in ECCS Technical Committee TC 10 and Working Group WG8 of TC 250 in CEN. His recent investigations focus on steel and composite joints and their influence on structure behaviour, especially the role of joints in assurance survival of framed structures subjected to accidental loading in robustness analysis. He is also Professional Engineer and Government Expert in Construction and Structures.
