The Special Issue on “Construction and Building Materials and Their Nondestructive Testing” will address advances in novel and enhanced construction and building materials that can contribute toward economical, long-lasting, environmentally friendly, and climate-adaptive structures. The construction and building materials covered include cement, concrete reinforcement, bricks and mortars, additives, unbound gravel and soil, ceramics, timber, steel, polymers, glass fibres, recycled materials, bamboo, rammed earth, non-conventional building materials, bituminous materials, railway materials, and plasterboards. Further, this Special Issue includes nondestructive testing (NDT) methods to assess the material properties and performance of in-service structures built with the materials mentioned above. The scope of this Special Issue includes materials, NDT, and monitoring aspects of new works and repair and maintenance of civil, environmental, mechanical, electrical, and medical engineering structures. Articles and reviews dealing with laboratory testing, field testing, and numerical modelling on the processing, characterisation, properties, performances, techniques for incorporating these novel materials in construction, quantifications of economic, environmental, climate-adaptive benefits of these materials, and NDT testing on these materials and structures are very 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.
