Commission 3

Structural Analysis and Evaluation

C3 provides a forum for discussion on problems related to structural analysis and evaluation. It aims to promote cooperation and knowledge transfer related to structural analysis and evaluation among global practitioners through online discussion boards, workshops and publications.

Field of Activity
Primarily in the early stages within the next 2-3 years, the commission would highlight on topics revolving around retrofitting of steel bridges. Artificial Intelligence and it is use in analysis is also an interesting aspect that C3 intends to explore. With currently an established Task Group on Super-long Span Bridge Aerodynamics, the commission will continue to promote activities involving wind turbines that are presently operating. In the long-term perspective, C3 aims to tackle topics related to glass and new materials, as well as matters on recalculation and validation/verification of existing constructions.
