Structural vibrations induced by many dynamic factors, such as earthquakes, accidental impacts and dynamic loads produced in service, are of increasing interest in civil engineering, not only in terms of safety, but also in terms of serviceability and comfort level. The mechanism of nonlinear behaviours, structural modelling and parameter identifications, response performances and their control of structures are among the key issues both of scientific and of engineering concern.

In the past decade, significant advances have been made in this field, including a series of new ideas, new theoretical development and new technologies emerging, e.g. recent development of nonlinear mechanics and modelling, structural monitoring and control and stochastic dynamics. This special issue focuses on vibration and control of structures.
