Special Issue Information
Ultra-high Performance Concrete (UHPC) and Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC) are two distinctive classes of high performance, fiber-reinforced cementitious composites. Due to their superior mechanical and durability properties, the applications of UHPC and ECC have been extensively studied, especially with respect to earthquake-resistant structures, durability, structural repairs and retrofitting, and bridge systems. Particularly, the production of UHPC and ECC members using 3D printing technology has been recently explored. The application of UHPC and ECC as a replacement for conventional concrete materials in RC elements necessitates a comprehensive understanding of the behavior of the materials under various types of loadings. This Special Issue is intended to include the studies that make significant advances in UHPC and ECC, inlcuding materials devleopment, mechanical and durability properties, structural applications, the production of materials and structures, analytical methods, computational models, experimental approaches, etc.

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 2300 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.
