Geomaterials are one of the key materials with extensive applications in civil and geological engineering. We are pleased to announce this Special Issue in the journal Materials, which mainly focuses on the properties, mechanics, applications, and related reinforced structures of geomaterials in civil engineering.
Specific topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
Research on geomaterials such as soils, clays, aggregates, rock mixtures, geosynthetics, cementitious/mineral materials, and inorganic binders, as well as geotechnical structures, including slopes, tunnels, retaining walls, subgrade, and foundations.
Reinforced and stabilized structures of geomaterials, for example, mixtures of soils with cement, lime, fly ash, polymers, geosynthetics, reinforcement of steel, and composite systems.
Mechanical, hydraulic, and durable performance of geomaterials and related structures under complex loading conditions and service environments.

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.
