Fiberglass-reinforced concrete composites have shown strict advantages in the last years of the 20th century due to several technological developments involving the matrix, the fiber, the interface, the composite production process, and the underestimation of the mechanisms that control their particular behavior. The advantages are well known, such as higher tensile strength, durability, impact, fatigue, freeze and thaw resistance, and lower crack growth.
In recent years, problems related to environmental issues have motivated extensive scientific research into materials that have less impact on the environment. The use of fibers obtained from renewable plant sources in composite materials has been an object of growing interest. A combination of good mechanical and physical properties coupled with their environmental benefits have been the main driver factors for their use as potential alternatives to conventional steel reinforcements.
The purpose of this Materials (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/materials) Special Issue on “Developments in Fiber-Reinforced Cement” is to provide a compendium of the latest advances in order to contribute to the systematization and dissemination of knowledge related to fiber-reinforced cement composites, namely, new recent advances, and developments in this domain. We invite researchers to contribute original research articles as well as review articles that will stimulate the continuing efforts to understand the recent advances and innovation in this research field. Manuscripts combining experimental implementation with theoretical calculations and techno-economic assessment are welcome.

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.
