Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

New trends in concrete science allow the structure of engineering objects to be shaped more quickly and safely than in the case of concrete with traditional properties and components. Technological operations of forming concrete elements are, in the case of new-generation concrete, considerably simplified, and end results allow hardened concrete structures to be exposed in a more extended way. One modification of the considered concrete is to add various kinds of additives (fibers, waste, modified aggregate, etc.) to its volume as non-conventional components. This is not a new issue in the technology of concrete; however, in the case of concrete with modified brittle matrix composites, it provides a current area of research. Technological problems in applying new-generation concrete modified with non-conventional additives and technologies are the subject of the current Special Issue.

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.
