Challenge Journal of Structural Mechanics

Challenge Journal of Structural Mechanics is an international, quarterly published and open access scholarly journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles, case studies, short communications, discussions, book reviews, letters to the editor and a diary on international events related to any aspect of structural engineering.

Primary aim of CJSMEC is to encourage academic challenges in structural mechanics and materials disciplines to seek for the global truth. Therefore, the Journal intends to publish at least a review or discussion as a challenge to previously published papers at each issue. A double blind peer-review policy is followed in order to increase the scientific quality of the published papers.


DOI Assignment

TULPAR Academic Publishing has completed the agreement with Crossref. DOIs have been assigned to the published articles in Challenge Journal of Structural Mechanics and future articles will be published directly with their DOIs.

Furthermore, more journals are incoming within our publishing group. We kindly ask you to recommend Challenge Journals to your colleagues and encourage them to submit their high quality papers to the journals.


Scope of CJSMEC

Contributions may range from new methods to novel applications of existing methods to gain understanding of the structural based mechanical behavior of new and advanced engineering systems.

The scope of CJSMEC encompasses, but is not restricted to the following areas. Papers making a fundamental contribution focused at the following topics are welcome.

  • Design of civil, building and mechanical structures
  • Analytical and computational modelling methods
  • Structural optimization and computation
  • Structural reliability and stability
  • Earthquake engineering
  • Seismic hazard studies
  • Earthquake scenarios
  • Computational mechanics
  • Rigid-body mechanics
  • Dynamic impact mechanics
  • Fracture mechanics
  • Effects of wind and wave loadings on structures
  • Effects of fire and blast on structures
  • Bridges and special structures
  • Concrete, masonry, steel and composite structures
  • Damage and failure mechanisms in materials and structures
  • Structure-soil interaction
  • Fluid-soil interaction
  • Geotechnical mechanics
  • Structural repairing and strengthening methods


CIVILMEET2023: 2nd International Meet on Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering


2nd International Meet on Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering to be held in Brussels, Belgium during May 18-20, 2023. CIVILMEET2023 is organized under the auspices of the Albedo Meetings. It is our pleasure to invite all scientists, academicians, young researchers, business delegates and students from all over the world to attend the conference.

CIVILMEET2023 provides a platform of international standards where you can discuss and share persuasive key advances in Civil, Structural and Environmental Engineering. In addition to Presentations, Workshops, and Discussions, the conference also offers a unique venue for renewing professional relationships, networking and remaining up-to-date variations in our challenging and expanding discipline.

Papers presented in CIVILMEET2023 which are focused on structural mechanics studies, will be considered for publication in Challenge Journal of Structural Mechanics. Authors may submit their full length papers via online submission system or send to via e-mail. Regarding to the count and the diversity of the studies, papers will be published in a special issue or in the regular issues in an appropriate calendar.

* In case authors wish to submit their papers via online submission system, please select "CIVILMEET2023" as the Journal Section from the drop-down menu.



The colleagues who have contributed to the Journal in 2021 by reviewing submitted manuscripts could be seen from the attached list.

We would like to express our gratitude to them for helping to increase the quality of the Journal.
