The main topics of this Special Issue are linear and, mainly, nonlinear dynamics, chaos and control of systems and structures and their applications in different field of science and engineering. According to the goal of the Special Issue, the selected contributions are divided into three major parts: "Vibration Problems in Vertical Transportation Systems", "Nonlinear Dynamics, Chaos and Control of Elastic Structures" and "New Strategies and Challenges for Aerospace and Ocean Structures Dynamics and Control". The discussion of real problems in aerospace and how these problems can be understood and solved in view of numerical, computational, theoretical and experimental approaches is an important field in engineering science. The contributions pertaining this class of problems and methods associated to aerospace structures are an important part of this special issue. The contributions cover mathematical modeling, nonlinear analysis, control theory, nonlinear state estimation, experimental analysis and related topics associated to artificial satellites, airplanes, rockets, space tethers, helicopters and related systems.
