This Special Issue, "Simulation and Experimental Approach in Wood and Wood-Based Composite Structures Design," will address advances in analytical, numerical, and experimental methods of designing and modeling various-sized structures manufactured from wood and wood-based composites. Therefore, investigations into the mechanical problems in wood, wood-based materials, joints, fasteners, and glued connections are welcome. Interesting properties of the new materials and components for designing structures characteristic of the furniture, construction, and automotive industries will be presented. We are looking for new research results on the interaction between the joined materials in changing operating conditions. Simulation and experimental technics are critical in the sustainable design of products made of bio-based materials. Designers are seeking structures with high strength and stiffness at an optimally low weight. Each use of analytical and numerical methods reduces the costs of prototyping and validation, facilitates the diagnosis of damage occurrence, and enables the assessment of structures manufactured using biomaterials. Interesting experimental methods allow us to verify the theory and minimize modeling costs. Original articles on simulation-based design and practical approaches to wood and wood-based composite structures design under various operating conditions are invited. This particular issue welcomes contributions from the "30th International Conference Research for Furniture Industry" organized by Poznan University of Life Sciences and Gazi University on 22-23 September 2022. This collection will provide a complete understanding of how the quality of materials, joints, and structures can be improved using simulations and experimental approaches. Contributions can be submitted as original research papers or review articles.

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. 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.
