Special Issue "New Trends in Geopolymer Concrete"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 October 2023 | Viewed by 3816
Driven by the goal of carbon neutrality, the building materials industry has discovered great challenges and opportunities. Geopolymer concrete has been recognized as a green and low-carbon cementitious material, because it can employ recyclable raw materials to replace cement as the cementing material, and possesses acceptable and even better properties. The aim of this Special Issue is to gather research regarding the recent scientific progress in geopolymer concrete, to promote the depth and range of this study, so as to develop its popularization and applications. The scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limit to, the formation mechanism, mixture design method, mechanical properties, durability, microstructure, dynamic properties, structural behaviors, waste utilization, sustainability, and its life cycle environmental evaluation. Furthermore, this Special Issue aims to compile comprehensive knowledge, other potential studies on engineered geopolymer composites, CO2 capture and utilization, energy storage, 3D printing, bio-materials, numerical study, monitoring methods and artificial intelligence, etc.
We kindly invite you to submit a manuscript(s) for publication in this Special Issue. Original research articles, communications and reviews are all 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.
