IABSE Symposium Prague 2022 (ePDF) – Challenges for Existing and Oncoming Structures
25-27 May 2022, Prague, Czech Republic

Welcome to the IABSE Symposium Prague 2022 Challenges for Existing and Oncoming Structures (CEOS). Thanks to the quality of the contributions offered, the Scientific Committee succeeded in preparing an interesting Proceedings to summarised the latest developments of structural engineering with respect to the advanced and new methods of design and analysis.

Scientists, experts, designers, contractors and all those who are interested in advances and problems in civil engineering structures and bridges, in numerical modelling and advanced methods of design, to contribute to the theme. All written papers presented in this Proceedings are peer-reviewed by the Scientific Committee.

The conference format has been chosen to facilitate debates and discussions. For this purpose, each session has been limited to five presentations with a time left to the Session Facilitators to encourage questions and interaction amongst speakers and attendees. The Organizers hope that this Symposium will help to share the experience of the world’s structural engineering community with today megastructures and to present the vision of tomorrow’s megastructures and more broadly their prospect of future outstanding structures.

During the event the large majority of the presentations are delivered orally in sessions, nevertheless Special Sessions are taking place as well. Task Groups of IABSE proposed these Special Sessions with a keen sense of innovation and currently achieved knowledge. Renowned Keynote Speakers are introducing relevant topics to the theme and give a state-of-the-art lecture.

This Symposium would not have been organized without the sustained effort of many persons. The authors, the committee members, and the reviewers are essential to the success of the Symposium. Especially, we would like to thank the members of the Scientific Committee for their efforts in handling of the papers and preparing the technical program, and the members of the Local Organizing Committee for concocting an amazing programme.
