Special Issue "Seismic Design and Structures Analysis of Construction Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 September 2023) | Viewed by 11846
In recent decades, the threats of earthquake have brought forth a series of challenging structural engineering problems to the design, construction, and service of infrastructures in earthquake-prone regions. Reliability of construction in earthquakes is greatly affected by the materials used for the constituent elements of structure, architecture, and equipment. Seismic design and structure analysis of construction materials have been and continue to be the major concern of structural engineers in the seismic design of engineering structures. Modern performance-based design methods require detailed structural analysis to investigate the actual behavior of construction materials under such conditions. New challenges are present in the improvement and characterization of earthquake-resistant behavior of construction materials, e.g., high ductility, high strength–weight ratio, homogeneity, orthotropy, and ease in making full strength connections. Extensive innovative studies have been carried out by the international engineering community on the seismic design and structure analysis of various construction materials, and substantial new theories, insights, and data have been secured.
In light of these considerations, this Special Issue aims to provide to researchers worldwide a forum to share their research outcomes and report recent advancements on seismic design and structure analysis of construction materials. It is hoped that this Special Issue will provide a timely overview on recent case histories, theoretical advances, laboratory and field testing, and design methods. Original contributions containing fundamental and applied research, case studies, or the state of the art are encouraged to be submitted to the Special Issue.

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.
