A transition of energy sources and infrastructures is needed in the next two decades to ensure a sustainable movement of freight and to guarantee an affordable and inclusive economic development. In order to allow safe and green transportation of raw materials, parts and finished consumer products, engineers and scientists specialized in computational mechanics are called to go further in the comprehension and prediction of static and dynamic behaviour of materials and structures.

This Special Issue aims to gather the latest advances on the structural analysis for the industrial fields of new energy and freight transport infrastructures.

The main topics covered in this Special Issue deal with numerical modelling and simulations, experimental mechanics and the characterization and analysis of traditional and innovative materials and structures for storage and transport of energy sources (including fossil fuels as well as renewable resources), materials and goods, considering the main principles of safety and environmental sustainability.

We welcome the submission of papers on numerical simulations, possibly comprising experimental investigations to validate numerical analyses. The application of structural static and dynamic analysis; damage, fatigue, delamination, fracture mechanics; processes of welding, riveting, and bonding; considerations of the orthotropic and anisotropic behaviour of materials are of particular interest.
