IJLCPE is founded on the basis that everyone in the design, construction and management of civil structures should consider that each decision made and each action taken is constrained by limited resources. It is vitally important that they take into account that structures have a finite lifetime and are involved in an aging process whereby slow degradation and sudden environmental threats play a role and risk evolves to higher values, implying additional costs. Structural performance thus becomes a "lifecycle performance".
Topics covered include
- Damage evolution and risk analysis
- Time dependent structural performance and lifecycle behaviour
- Environmental threats (earthquakes, floods, strong winds), residual safety analysis
- Degradation and aging of structural materials
- Robustness and vulnerability to local explosions and fires
- Infrastructural and urban system resilience
- Lifecycle oriented design criteria
- Maintenance planning
- Lifecycle and retrofit
- Safety assessment by structural health monitoring
- Case studies
The objectives of IJLCPE are to establish an effective channel of communication between scientific researchers, professional engineers, construction companies, managers and administrations, aiming to promote the philosophy of lifecycle performance oriented design and construction and to contribute to tracing a pathway towards more suitable maintenance and exploitation procedures and to establish rational and consistent bases to support management and related decision making.
IJLCPE provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of civil construction management and exploitation, engineering and technical education, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work
IJLCPE publishes original papers, review papers and technical reports. Special Issues devoted to important topics in scientific and technological advances, very important case studies and conference reports will occasionally be published.

Shoring up coastal defences
5 July, 2019
Throughout civilisation, coastal defences have been an issue for those people who live by the sea. Now, climate change and its implications for rising sea levels make the issue increasingly pressing for more and more people. Research published in the International Journal of Lifecycle Performance Engineering, discusses the issue of over-topping of sea defences in the face of a changing environment [...]More details...
