Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Construction steel has widely been used worldwide for developing infrastructures, e.g., bridges and buildings, because of its many advantages, including durability, lightweight, high strength, and sustainability. Moreover, combining such advantages with those of concrete, composite steel–concrete structures have increasingly been applied due to a growing demand for new research. In recent years, a great variety of structural members have been developed, including post-tensioned thin-walled steel box-girders, steel–concrete composite decks with shear connectors, and concrete-filled steel tubular and concrete-encased steel members. Particularly, research topics on steel and composite steel–concrete bridges and buildings cover corrosion, fatigue, fire scenarios, limit and ultimate state designs, linear and nonlinear analyses, maintenance, monitoring, post-tensioning applications, progressive collapse, resistance of components, retrofitting and strengthening, seismic, dynamic, and static loadings, stability, etc.

This Special Issue aims to gather new, genuine, and detailed contributions and future perspectives in the aforementioned topics. State-of-the-art papers are also welcome. It is our pleasure to invite you to submit your work and share this call for papers with your colleagues. High-quality manuscripts related to (but not limited to) the following topics in steel and composite steel–concrete bridges and buildings are welcome:

  • Advanced construction technologies;
  • Advanced discrete and finite element modeling;
  • Development of design standards;
  • Development of high-performance material;
  • Laboratory and field investigations;
  • Linear and nonlinear analyses of geometric and material properties;
  • Monitoring techniques/sensor technologies for deterioration conditions;
  • Nondestructive testing methods;
  • Progressive collapse performance;
  • Serviceability issues under seismic, dynamic, and static loadings, fracture, fatigue, fire, corrosion, etc.;
  • Strengthening and repair interventions.

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. Infrastructures 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 1600 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.
