The Journal of Structural Control provides a forum in which survey articles and original research in the field of structural control can be communicated rapidly toward a cross-fertilization of information and ideas. An important aim is not only to achieve a balance between academic material and practical applications, but also to establish an interface between the many topics which characterise the interdisciplinary nature of structural control. The Journal encompasses all aspects of structural control theory and technology. Special attention will be devoted to civil and infrastructure engineering applications, but related fields, such as aerospace and ocean systems, will also be covered. Review articles and original contributions based on analytical, computational and experimental methods are solicited in three main areas: monitoring, control and smart materials and structures. Each area consists of several viewpoints, and it is from a mutual understanding of these that innovations arise, and this Journal pursues those innovations. Health monitoring, health diagnostics and sensor technology are the core of the first area. Passive, active and semiactive control schemes and implementations represent the second and central field. Shape memory alloys, piezoelectrics and mechatronics in general complete the picture. However, actuator design, dynamic systems, dynamic stability, artificial intelligence tools, data acquisition, wireless communications, measurement and experimental techniques span across the three areas and represent the backbone of the journal.
