51 papers which succinctly describe the state of the art in the areas: Comptutational models and techniques; Structural dynamics; Innovative construction materials; Damage simulation and Durability. The papers show the application of innovative methods to practical situations. The spectrum of the single papers ranges from experimental and theoretical investigations of structures subject to dynamic loading (wind, earthquake, church bell ringing, explosions), FE analyses of non-linear structural behaviour, innovative design and analysis concepts for reinforced concrete and steel structures and safety assessment methods with explicit damage evaluation to complex building/foundation models, structural glass and textile span investigations for existing historical steel bridges and optimization aspects.
