Masonry is one of the oldest construction techniques and, in addition to being important from the perspective of historical heritage, many modern structures are still built using masonry. Advances in material science have resulted in higher strength, productivity, and sustainability in masonry construction. New developments and applications in advenced construction technologies would increase the popularity of masonry structures. Additionally, masonry has a significant share within the overall building inventory, and further research is needed that focuses on the rehabilitation and renovation of existing masonry structures from the perspective of sustainability and resiliency. New technological solutions should encompass a broader perspective that includes not only the mechanical and chemical properties of masonry building materials but also advances in structural design, strengthening, and production technologies.
In this Special Issue, all papers advancing knowledge and practice on masonry structures are welcome. The scope of papers could range from the full-scale or non-destructive testing of masonry, including laboratory or in situ testing methods; advanced modeling or numerical techniques for the assessment of built masonry; probabilistic analyses regarding advanced structural materials and masonry; advances in assessment procedures for masonry structures; strengthening and retrofitting masonry structures; to future perspectives in masonry construction technologies, advances in materials and sustainability, and increasing resiliency to mitigate devastating extreme conditions.

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.
