Disaster prevention and mitigation for engineering structures is an important research field, which involves formation mechanisms, dynamic responses, collapse analyses, disaster prevention and mitigation strategies, etc. The research of natural disasters, which include the earthquake, landslide, falling rocks, and debris flow, can avoid catastrophic damage and reduce the vibration and noise of engineering structures, bringing more comfort and convenience to human life.

Computer modelling has been rapidly evolved over the past few decades to simulate actual geologic conditions and engineering circumstances. At present, considering the local geologic hazards related to the project decision and risk analysis, which include but not limited to the water inrush, rockburst, and frozen soil, the application of the most accurate modelling method has received significant attention from the researchers in disaster prevention and mitigation.

The main purpose of the proposed special issue is to explore and share the most recent progress and novel trends in computer modeling in disaster prevention and mitigation for engineering structures. Herein, original articles and review papers addressing innovative development in computer modelling are valuable scientific contributions. Moreover, research papers summarizing state of the art are also welcomed.
