Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2023) | Viewed by 1826
Interests: fiber-reinforced cementitious composites; multiscale modeling; concrete materials and structures; numerical analysis; composite repairs and structural strengthening
Numerical modeling and mechanical properties of fiber-reinforced cementitious composites (FRCCs) are always attractive research topics. However, there are persistent challenges in the creative design of materials and structural components when developing high-performance construction materials to be used in durable, sustainable and resilient infrastructures and advanced construction technology. This Special Issue provides an informative and stimulating forum to promote academic communications on this challenging topic, focusing on the development and applications of numerical and experimental methods, and algorithms for simulating and analyzing mechanical properties of FRCCs and structures made of FRCCs.
Original research papers and review articles with a focus on the numerical modeling and mechanical properties of FRCCs tailored for engineering applications are encouraged to be submitted. Topics can include, but are not limited to, the following: experimental and numerical analyses of mechanical properties of FRCCs and structures; durability of FRCCs and structures in harsh environments; the fatigue performance of FRCCs and structures; the 3D printing of FRCCs; the dynamic performance of FRCCs and structures; and multiscale models and methods for the deformation and failure analysis of FRCCs and structures.

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.
