Special Issue "Novel Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Technologies for Structures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 October 2023 | Viewed by 7346
Interests: FRP structures; structural concrete; external prestressing; finite element method; composite structures
The application of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) materials in strengthening and reinforcing various structures (e.g. concrete, wood, steel and masonry structures) has progressively increased since the 1980’s because of their attractive advantages such as high strength, light weight and non-corrosive property. This Special Issue aims to cover all state-of-the-art updates on FRP-concrete bond, FRP anchorage, FRP strengthening method, novel debonding/damage detection method, FRP reinforced concrete, FRP prestressing systems, and novel FRP elements. Special emphasis will be placed on novel updates to improve FRP-based bond performance, increase the capacity and stiffness of FRP reinforced elements, alert premature debonding failure, and develop design recommendations guiding the usage of novel FRP elements. Topics of interest include novel experimental, numerical and theoretical works on FRP reinforced/strengthened elements and structures under different loading (e.g. monotonic, cyclic, sustained, seismic and explosive loads) and environmental conditions (e.g. high temperature and marine environment). The last but not the least, this Special Issue is widely inclusive for a large number of works within the scope.

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.
