Concrete cracking is a crucial factor that threatens the durability and strength of concrete. Especially for concrete building structures with complex working environments such as hydraulic structures and long-span building structures, concrete cracking seriously threatens the safe operation of engineering projects. Cracking resistance of concrete is influenced by many factors, such as mechanical properties, temperature process, autogenous shrinkage, restrained stress, and creep, etc. The study of crack resistance of concrete is of great significance to its wide application. This Special Issue focuses on, but is not limited to, the research on the cracking resistance of ordinary Portland cement concrete, the relationship between the cracking mechanism and performance of some types of concrete such as alkali-activated cement concrete, fiber or steel reinforced concrete, self-compacting concrete, self-healing concrete, high performance concrete, reactive powder concrete, and recycled aggregate concrete, etc.
It is my pleasure to invite you to contribute to the Special Issue “Study on Crack Resistance of Concrete”. Full papers, communications, discussions, and reviews related to induction factors of concrete cracking and concrete properties, microscopic formation mechanism of concrete cracking, kinetics of crack growths depending on the duration and the magnitude of the external load, concrete crack recognition and extraction technology, numerical simulation study of concrete cracking, and materials, NDT and monitoring aspects of resistance and maintenance of concrete cracks or defects are welcomed.

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.
