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 dialog 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)
- Decision support and management (e.g. data modelling and resilience assessment, life cycle cost analysis, risk assessment, life cycle assessment, characterization/modelling of interdependencies), etc.
- Transportation geotechnics and geoecology
- Remote sensing, online monitoring, and non-destructive evaluation of infrastructures
