General context

Civil engineering is arguably the oldest engineering discipline. It deals with the act of designing and executing structures that serve human life development. Since its foundation 1771, the Society of Civil Engineers has focused on several areas as geotechnical and environmental problems, soil improvement, construction materials development and innovation, aseismic technics, dynamic and nonlinear problems, bridges and highways, interactions, and aerodynamic, to mention but a few.
The Third International Civil Engineering Seminar of Bechar 2023 is a continuation of the two previous seminars held in 2013 and 2015 at Tahri Mohamed University of Bechar. This seminar offers the opportunity for researchers to exchange knowledge on civil engineering fields. Researchers all over the world are invited to consolidate all the results of scientific work developed in this field to confront the development needs of the human living environment in a secure and economic context.
During this seminar, we shall discuss current trends in civil and hydraulic engineering including new technologies, methods, theories, and practices in all branches of these disciplines by bringing together international researchers and experts. We have invited Keynote Speakers and planned several events to take place during the seminar, which we hope you will find interesting.
We are confident that you will enjoy the quality of the seminar as well as the landscape and touristic sites for which Bechar is famous. We will all be pleased to see you here for the 3rd SIGCB 2023 .
