EDITORIAL ASSIGNMENTS

Associate Editor, Journal of Structural Engineering, American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE): The Journal of Structural Engineering reports on fundamental knowledge that contributes to the state-of-the-art and state-of-practice in structural engineering. Authors discuss the art and science of structural design; investigate the physical properties of engineering materials as related to structural behavior; develop methods of analysis; and study the merits of various types of structures and methods of construction. Dr. Catbas’s primary areas of expertise identified for the journal are Dynamics and Structural Health Monitoring (SHM).

Associate Editor and Editorial Board Member, Structure and Infrastructure Engineering (SIE) Journal Maintenance, Management, Life-Cycle Design and Performance: Structure and Infrastructure Engineering Journal is an international journal dedicated to recent advances in maintenance, management and life-cycle performance of a wide range of infrastructures such as: buildings, bridges, dams, underground constructions, offshore platforms, pipelines, naval vessels, ocean structures, nuclear power plants, airplanes and other types of structures including aerospace and automotive structures. SIE is in the Science Citation Index. www.informaworld.com/sie

Editorial Board Member, Structure Monitoring and Maintenance, An International Journal: Structure and Infrastructure Engineering Journal. The journal publishes the high quality papers within the journal scope: Environmental loads and effects, Spot/Periodic/Permanent/Online monitoring, Identification/Diagnosis/Assessment/Decision analysis, Design/Retrofit/Maintenance/Renewal/Risk management, and related areas of structural engineering.
