Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript to a unique Special Issue of the journal Materials focusing on the current and innovative uses of building materials in Poland.

Currently, in Poland, various methods of recycling are applied and various materials are used successfully in building construction and civil engineering.

Areas of interest in this edition are:

  • Renovating buildings;
  • Road pavements;
  • Use of recycled materials;
  • Addition to base building materials;
  • Systems used in the assessment of structures and pavements;
  • Modeling and numerical analyses;
  • Methods and technologies for object reconstruction considering new and recycled materials.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Materials is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.

Abstract: Currently, when building roads, before applying an asphalt or concrete surface, the ground that is the basis of the road under construction must be compacted and stabilized. There are two basic methods of soil stabilization: in situ and in a stationary node (ex-situ). The method of performing stabilization in place (in-situ) is the most frequently used method due to its convenience and lower price. The most popular type of binder for stabilization is a hydraulic binder (most often cement and various ashes). Such stabilization is performed at a depth of 10-50 cm, achieving the desired load-bearing parameters. In order to improve them, various chemical additives for stabilization are often used, such as ion exchange compounds, additives based on sulfuric acid, additives based on vinyl polymers or even organic additives using lignosulfonates. However, the use of such additives is associated with much greater costs and environmental burden, resulting in seeking for cheaper and equally effective alternatives. The win-win situation would be for instance recycling the problematic waste-based materials that on one hand are landfilled or impossible to recycle and on the other hand cause problems for the waste producers. Therefore, an interesting issue is the production of stabilization additives from various types of waste materials. The research has been carried out by the Construction Company "WACIŃSKI" via the project: “Development and implementation of effective stabilizing mixtures for the foundation of road surfaces using fly ashes from the coal-based energy sector in Gdansk” (Regional Development Programme of Pomorskie Voivodeship/ Action 1.1.1 Expansion via innovations),
