Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of the journal Materials focuses on the cracking and serviceability behavior of ultra-high-performance fiber-reinforced concrete (UHPFRC). UHPFRC is an innovative and high-performance material that offers superior mechanical properties, durability, and resistance to various forms of deterioration. This Special Issue aims to explore ongoing research on UHPFRC serviceability and cracking behavior.

The articles presented in this Special Issue demonstrate advancements in the understanding of crack formation and propagation in UHPFRC and provide insights into the serviceability and long-term performance of UHPFRC structures. The topics discussed include fundamental investigations of UHPFRC materials, modeling of UHPFRC structures, evaluation of crack behavior, and analysis of structural behavior under different loading conditions. The findings presented in this Special Issue provide valuable information for engineers and researchers to optimize the use of UHPFRC in practical applications.

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.
