Recent developments in Civil Engineering have shown great advancement towards the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. This research and practice trend, however, is quite different in developing countries. Due to limitations in developing countries such as lack of proper infrastructures, modern laboratory tools and devices, limited budgets, and limited expertise and standards in specific areas of importance, developing countries mostly take different research line and approaches that need less proper infrastructure. The practices and results of projects is however different as they are inter-related with the society and governmental needs. Therefore, this special issue is dedicated research and practices of Civil Engineering in developing countries in order to demonstrate their different nature and needs, as well as the interesting outputs and results that they offer.
