The Thirteenth International Conference on Computational Structures Technology

4-6 September 2018 | Sitges, Barcelona, Spain

This is the thirteenth conference in the Computational Structures Technology (CST) series that commenced in 1991. The conference is concerned with the application of the latest computational technology to structural mechanics and engineering. Computational technology encompasses both the latest hardware and software developments as well as algorithmic and theoretical techniques.

The conference is also concerned with both theoretical, mathematical and scientific developments as well as applications of established technology to new domains. The word 'structures' is interpreted in its widest sense.

The conference runs concurrently with the Tenth International Conference on Engineering Computational Technology (ECT). Participants may attend sessions from either conference.

The CST2018 Conference will be opened jointly with the ECT2018 Conference with a lecture presented by Professor Klaus-Jürgen Bathe of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. 


The themes for this conference will include (but are not limited to):

  • Computational methods applied to all engineering disciplines
  • Analysis
  • Analysis: Methods and techniques
  • Materials modelling and characterisation
  • Pre and post processing
  • Optimisation and design
  • Software Development: Tools, Techniques and Issues
  • Areas of application including all aspects of aerospace, civil, mechanical, geotechnical, railway and offshore structures
  • Structural types and studies
  • Computational engineering: Education and training
