Steel Constuction (4 issues / year)
While architects often dominate the headlines, civil engineers are responsible for bringing to life their ideas, ensuring that they are practical, safe and can withstand the forces of nature. Civil engineers have given the world bridges of more than 100 miles long, buildings that reach the clouds, and railway tunnels deep underground. They have created infrastructures that help to connect people, which have been vital to economic development and social mobility, improving the quality of people’s lives.
We could show an increase for most of our journals, with Beton- und Stahlbetonbau (Concrete and Reinforced Concrete Structures) in particular showing a good improvement from 0.425 to 0.691. A new feature is the CiteScore, another ranking factor assigned by the citing database Scopus (Elsevier). The numbers for most of the E&S journals have increase aswell.
The New Lyon-Turin Line (NLTL) is an essential component of the ”Mediterranean Corridor“, one of the nine TEN-T network corridors, the future ”European metropolitan railway“ that will promote the movement of people and goods by rail, an ecological mode of transport. The goal is to reduce road transport, which increases pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
With 12 % of the tunnels already excavated, there are currently 800 people working on the NLTL. This unique project, with its extraordinary history and innovative features, has been proposed as the subject of an international case study.

Kienlesberg Bridge is the new link for trams, pedestrians and cyclists between the inner city and the science centre in the north-west of Ulm. The bridge crosses a railway junction near the main station and a new high-speed rail link.
The geometric boundary conditions lead to unequal spans and complex alignments. Therefore, the scheme that won the design competition, which is now under construction, proposed a bridge made of steel.
Special calculations and details were necessary for dynamic and noise control reasons. The bridge is being built using incremental launching.
