Special Issue "Advanced Design & Behavior of Concrete Structures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 January 2024 | Viewed by 5292
Concrete structures are regarded as the backbone of building a sustainable society, especially when facing natural- and human-caused disasters such as earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, fire, or blast incidents. This is considered a trending topic in the natural hazard and risk field, and it is critical for protecting human lives and minimizing economic losses. Due to these facts, researchers are working on improving new building components and construction techniques that are being established through innovative computational models, experimental approaches, and disaster prevention and mitigation techniques for various engineering concrete structures such as bridges, buildings, retaining walls, tunnels, dams, and other types.
Moreover, this Special Issue tackles the behavior of concrete structures subjected to dynamic loads due to earthquakes and vibration, a thermal effect due to fire, and blast and fragment impacts that can affect concrete structures that follow different structural systems, including load-bearing, framed, truss, shell, and mass structures.
This Special Issue serves all researchers, practitioners, and professionals in different engineering, design, and technology sectors. The Special Issue aims to expand the boundaries of knowledge in these fields and provide an international forum for the interchange of information on “Advanced Design and Behavior of Concrete Structures” from around the world.
This Special Issue encompasses fully refereed papers on the practice and progress in the stated fields, in-depth case research papers, project and case study reviews, and discussions on research, innovation, and strategies.
This Special Issue plans to give an overview of the most recent advances in the field of “Advanced Design and Behavior of Concrete Structures” and their applications in various areas, where the following topics are suggested, but submitted papers do not have to be limited to these subjects:
- Design strategies;
- Alternative and new technologies;
- Design, implement, and practice innovation;
- Experimental and computational simulation of dynamic effects on structures;
- Code requirements, development, and evaluation;
- Advanced experimental techniques for concrete;
- Advanced modeling technologies for concrete structures;
- Static and dynamic;
- Concrete structures under loading and extreme environmental 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.
