Aims and scope

Journal of Infrastructure Preservation and Resilience (JIPR) provides a cross-disciplinary forum for researchers to disseminate innovative research and engineering practices that preserve the integrity, performance, and resilience of existing infrastructure systems amid diverse climatic conditions, man-made and natural hazards, and other risks. Planning, design, construction, operations, inspection, monitoring, evaluation, retrofitting and reinforcing of infrastructure system (roads, bridges, tunnels, buildings, airports, ports, pipelines, etc.) are in scope with the journal. The journal aims to facilitate the dialogue and collaboration between infrastructure engineering community and resilience and risk management community.  

Topics of interest may include the following:

  • Preservation and monitoring against foundational risks of infrastructures (e.g. bridge scour and slope instability)
  • Preservation and rehabilitation against infrastructure materials-related distresses (corrosion, freeze/thaw damage, alkali-aggregate reactions, cracking, rutting, aging, moisture damage, etc.)
  • Infrastructure system response and resilience (e.g., adaptation to disasters, climate change and extreme weather): robustness and post-hazard recovery, resource allocation, and social technical or system-oriented aspect of resilience
  • Decision support and asset management (e.g., data modelling and resilience assessment, risk assessment, life cycle assessment, life cycle cost analysis, characterization/modelling of interdependencies)
  • Design and in-service performance of advanced infrastructure materials and structures
  • Remote sensing, online monitoring, and non-destructive evaluation of infrastructures
  • Structural reliability and safety
  • Transportation geotechnics and geoecology

"Probabilistic analysis of climate change impact on chloride-induced deterioration of reinforced concrete considering Nordic climate"

The impact of climate change on the deterioration of reinforced concrete elements have been frequently highlighted as worthy of investigation. This article addresses this important issue by presenting a time-variant reliability analysis to assess the effect of climate change on four limit states; the probabilities of corrosion initiation, crack initiation, severe cracking, and failure of a simply supported beam built in 2020 and exposed to chloride-induced corrosion.
