Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Asphalt, as the second most used building material, is used worldwide. Asphalt roads were constructed in ancient times, and they have also been in use for over a hundred years in modern times. Nevertheless, even to this day, asphalt technology is still mostly traditional, with asphalt manufacturers hardly in favor of major changes. Asphalt science and technology are also advancing very slowly in comparison to other research areas. However, there is currently an increasing number of new materials and new test methods which may also be applicable in asphalt technology and test methods.

The aim of this Special Issue is to publish manuscripts on cutting-edge science and technology in the field of asphalt. The goal is to publish new ideas even if they seem unrealistic. The selection of papers will focus on new asphalt production technologies, new test methods and new ways of asphalt mixture design. Authors with limited English language skills are also welcome to promote their ideas.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • New or modified types of asphalt mixtures;
  • New perspective additives for the improved performance of asphalt mixtures;
  • New or modified ways for preparing asphalt mixture design;
  • New or modified technology for producing asphalt mixtures;
  • New or modified test methods for evaluation quality of asphalt mixture and asphalt layers.

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.
