I am pleased to announce that submissions for a new Special Issue of Materials with the title of “Structural Methods and Architectural Designs with Recent Technologies on Concrete, Steel, Woven, Fiber Cementitious and Composite Materials” are now open. This Special Issue is focused on new technologies reagarding methodologies, innovations, and designs in buildings and civil infrastructures, as well as aesthetic architectural planning and design by applying high-tech concrete, steel, woven, and fiber cementitious and composite materials for future buildings, membranes, and infrastructures by way of fiber-reinforced composites, fiber cementitious composites, precast uniform or curved non-uniform concrete composites, and any other hi-tech building materials.
Topics included in this Special Issue, with an emphasis on concrete, metal, woven, and fibers as the main innovative materials, are the following: the developments of high-performance concrete and composite materials, aesthetic architectural design of building structures and structural members, curved façades of concrete, aesthetic and structural design of membrane and space structures, structural and seismic innovations of concrete and steel structures, minimizing the reinforcement of steel bars, responses and resistances of buildings to fires, corrosion resistance of concrete, nonlinear analysis of uniform and curved non-uniform concrete composite structures, applications and methodologies of precast structural and nonstructural elements of modular unit buildings, and the manufacture of smart materials for fiber concrete composites using 3D printing technologies and applications.
Research topics and academic areas of interest for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, building and civil engineering, architectural design, material engineering, mechanical and aerospace engineering, as well as smart and sensor engineering, information technology, aesthetical design, etc.
If you need any further information about this Special Issue, please do not hesitate to contact us.

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.
