Earthquake and impact engineering are essential disciplines affecting the lives and properties of citizens in many parts of the world. They aim to understand the impact of seismic loading on buildings and other structures and infrastructures, avoiding future disasters. IJEIE is a peer-reviewed research journal offering an international forum fostering discussion on all aspects of the topic. It highlights the areas of earthquake hazard mitigation, preparedness and recovery germane to practicing engineers and reflecting state-of-the-art research.


 Topics covered include

  • Earthquake, structural and impact engineering
  • Damaging earthquakes, new developments in regulations, national policies applied after major seismic events
  • Earthquake hazard mitigation, preparedness and recovery
  • Seismology, tsunamis, ground motion characteristics, soil and foundation dynamics, wave propagation
  • Earthquake resistant design and retrofit of structures
  • Supplemental energy dissipation, base isolation and structural control
  • Lifelines and offshore structures under shock and vibrations
  • Seismic code improvements
  • Seismic response of bridges and other special structures
  • Structural impact and failure
  • Structural crashworthiness
  • Blast loading and its effects on structures
  • Testing/measurement techniques coupled with applications

More on this journal...

The main objective of IJEIE is to improve the practice of earthquake hazard mitigation, preparedness and recovery. It aims to publish the original research findings related to the response of structures, bodies and materials to the exposure to earthquakes, impact and blast events. It aims to disseminate research and development work from engineering communities worldwide in the fields of earthquake and impact engineering and engineering seismology. Research on experimental, analytical, design and field studies are encouraged.


IJEIE is intended to serve the informational needs of the diverse professionals engaged in earthquake loss reduction: civil, geotechnical, mechanical and structural engineers; geologists, seismologists and other earth scientists; architects and city planners; public officials; social scientists; and researchers in all these disciplines. The journal provides a vehicle to help all these majors to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work.


IJEIE provides a forum for a broad blend of scientific and technical papers to reflect the evolving needs of the civil, forensic, structural, geotechnical and impact engineering, structural dynamics and structural/mechanical/earthquake related communities. Original state-of-the-art papers and case studies are welcome. Timely papers on field investigations following damaging earthquakes will be considered for accelerated review and publication. Also, the journal extends a special invitation to authors of short communications of new research findings that may not have been developed sufficiently to warrant full-length papers. Special issues on specific topics will occasionally be published.
