The topic for this Special Issue is “Large Deflections of Thin-Walled Structures”. While the linear behavior of thin-walled structures, such as beams, plats, and panels, has been widely investigated in the literature, their nonlinear behavior, due to their large displacements caused by mechanical applied loads, is somehow less discussed.
It is the aim of the present Special Issue to provide a new platform on which to present recent studies on the structural behavior of thin-walled structures undergoing large deflections.
These studies can present the static and dynamic behavior of those structures, highlighting new numerical methods, finite element solutions, as well as experimental results.

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.
