This monograph was created as the scientific outcome of the 2nd Central European Civil Engineering Meeting 2017 (CECEM 2017) which took place at Koszalin University of Technology (Faculty of Civil Engineering, Environmental and Geodetic Sciences) in Poland, 5 – 9 June 2017. Researchers representing four countries (Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania and Poland) were attending the meeting. The meeting was organized as an ERASMUS+ event. CECEM 2017 had both staff training (STT) and teaching (STA) character and was a great opportunity to share knowledge and experience in the field of civil and structural engineering. The week-long programme included round table discussions, presentations, problem solving cases, lab visits, workshops and social events. The main objectives of CECEM 2017 included peer-learning, networking, transfer of knowledge and sharing research experiences and best practices. Participants brought into the discussion examples from their own institutions and present best practices and innovative approaches to the issues addressed.

During CECEM 2017 multiple scientific presentations were delivered and discussed. Organizers decided to prepare the monograph as the outcome of the meeting to prevent these high quality presentations from perishing. Willing authors prepared extended versions of their papers for publication. After very careful analyses and peer-review process 10 chapters were accepted for the final version of the monograph. The inclusion of a chapter in the monograph was free of charge for the authors. The peer-reviewing, editing and printing costs were covered by Faculty of Civil Engineering, Environmental and Geodetic Sciences at Koszalin University of Technology.
