Special Issue in Fire: Fire (Post-fire) Behaviour of Concrete or Steel Material and Structural Members
Concrete, mortar and geo-materials are commonly used building materials for various hydraulic structures. As we all know, the operating conditions and working environment of hydraulic structures such as dams, spillways, weirs, culverts, and canals are very complex. During the operation period, they are not only affected by various loads in different ways but also subjected to natural factors such as abrasion, freeze-thaw, infiltration, carbonization, chemical erosion and so on in a relatively harsh environment. These environments are easy to cause the decay and aging of the physical and mechanical properties of the building materials, thereby shortening the service life of hydraulic structures, and even threatening the safe operation of hydraulic structures. Therefore, for some old and ill hydraulic structures, it is necessary to adopt high-performance repair materials and repair processes to ensure their safe operation. With the construction of high dams and reservoirs around the world, higher requirements will be placed on the material properties and restoration of hydraulic structures in the future, and there is a need for the development of hydraulic structures materials.
The main aim of this Special Issue "Advanced Studies in Structure Materials" in Buildings is to provide a platform for the discussion of the major research challenges and achievements in the development of novel hydraulic structures materials. We warmly invite authors to submit their papers for potential inclusion in this Special Issue on concrete, repair materials, mortar, sustainable materials and geo-materials in hydraulic structures such as dams, spillways, weirs, culverts, and canals.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Buildings is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
