Proceedings of the 2017 Global Conference on Mechanics and Civil Engineering (GCMCE 2017)

The 2017 Global Conference on Mechanics and Civil Engineering (GCMCE 2017) has taken place on June 24-25, 2017 in Guangzhou, China. We have invited scholars and researchers from all over the world to present the conference.

GCMCE 2017 attaches importance to presenting and publishing novel and fundamental advances in mechanics and civil engineering fields. Scholars and specialists on GCMCE 2017 shared their knowledge and amazing research. During the conference, an international stage was prepared for the participants to present their study theories. They also found practical applications for these theories in related fields.

In order to organize GCMCE 2017, we have sent our invitation to scholars and researchers from all around the world. Eventually, over 150 submissions were submitted to us. These papers have gone through a strict reviewing process performed by our international reviewers. All the submissions were double-blind reviewed, both the reviewers and the authors remaining anonymous. First, all the submissions were divided into several chapters according to the topics, and the information of the authors, including name, affiliation, email and so on, removed. Then the TPC chairs assigned the submissions to reviewers according to their research interests. Each submission was reviewed by two reviewers. The review results should be sent to chairs on time. If two reviewers had conflicting opinions, the paper would be transmitted to the third reviewer assigned by the chairs. Only papers which were approved by all reviewers were accepted for publication.

To prepare GCMCE 2017, we have received a lot help from a lot of people.

We thank all the contributors for their interest and support to GCMCE 2017. We also feel honored to have the support from our international reviewers and committee members. Moreover, the support from the Atlantis Press is also deeply appreciated; without their effort, this book will not be able to come into being.
