This Special Issue in honor of Prof. Fabio Casciati and Prof. Lucia Faravelli, both retired Professors from the University of Pavia (Italy), proposes papers in the spirit of their activity, with a strong scientific interaction between researchers from different backgrounds, operating in the fields of Applied and Computational Mechanics by analytical, computational and experimental works. It is, therefore, devoted to disseminate the current developments and trends in the area of structural mechanics and control and in the related fields as auspicated by the International Association for Structural Control and Monitoring (IASCM) and the European Association for the Control of Structures (EACS). During their Academic careers, Professor Fabio Casciati and Professor Lucia Faravelli deeply contributed to the spread and development of the discipline by acting as members and high representative of both these two Associations.
