Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Concrete 3D printing has received a lot of interest in recent years, leading to the development of new concepts, printing devices and construction designs. The disruptive development of 3D printing in the building field has induced multidisciplinary research development, leading to new mixed designs of printable materials, the definition of fresh state properties and rheological behaviour requirements, structural and architectural designs of printed structures using topology optimization, and robotics innovation.
This Special Issue focuses on works related to those innovations. Paper topics can include many aspects related to the digital fabrication of concrete and cement-based materials: processing, case studies, fresh state properties and rheological requirements, the mechanical behaviour of printed cement-based material, the structural design of printed parts and structures, and environmental and economic impacts.
This Special Issue is expected to provide a collection of articles showing an overview of recent advances in the field of concrete 3D printing and drawing future perspectives for these new revolutionary methods.

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.
