- This special issue of Smart Structures and Systems (SSS) is dedicated to Dr. Yozo Fujino to celebrate his outstanding and innovative contributions to structural engineering during his career. The papers in this issue present a wide range of recent results on bridge dynamics, wind and earthquake effects on structures, health monitoring, and passive/active control technology. This collection of papers also provides a glimpse into the broad nature of Dr. Fujino’s interests. Prof. Fujino is an internationally recognized leader who has been an inspiration to industrial and academic scientists and engineers for over 30 years. During his brilliant academic career, Prof. Fujino has made and continues to make fundamental contributions to dynamics, control and monitoring of bridges considering both wind actions and earthquakes loading. In addition, he has consulted on over 30 signature bridge projects including Akashi Kaikyo Bridge in Japan, Millennium Bridge (vibration control) in UK and Stonecutters Bridge in Hong Kong, demonstrating his recognition not only for his research achievements, but also for his practical knowledge and experience in bridge engineering. In addition to his numerous contributions to science and engineering, Dr. Fujino is a dedicated and passionate teacher and professor, inspiring young scientists and engineers to advance their knowledge and experiences. Dr. Fujino is currently a Distinguished Professor of Advanced Sciences at Yokohama National University (YNU) in Japan. He is also jointly appointed as a Program Director (Policy Adviser) for the Council for Science, Technology and Innovation, Cabinet Office, Japanese Government. Prior to joining YNU, he served for more than 30 years as a Professor of Civil Engineering and the head of the Bridge and Structures Laboratory at The University of Tokyo. On behalf of all the contributors to this special issue, we would like to sincerely congratulate Dr. Yozo Fujino on a truly amazing career and wish him good health, happiness, and many more contributions to structural engineering in the years to come.
