Durability and sustainability are important directions for the development of cement and concrete composites, and have increasingly attracted the global attention of scientists, engineers, and technologists. The durability of cement and concrete composites is of great significance to the service safety of the structure, and it also helps to reduce the maintenance cost and resource waste caused by insufficient durability in the later stage. Another important aspect is the sustainable development of cement and concrete composites to realize a virtuous recycling between the development of concrete technology and resources and the environment, minimize the waste of resources for repair or demolition and the generation of construction waste, use a large amount of industrial solid wastes instead of high-emission cement, and reduce resource and energy consumption, and environmental pollution.
The aim of this special issue entitled “Durability and Sustainability of Cement and Concrete Composites” is to collect a coherent set of papers presenting recent advances in the field of durability and sustainability of cement and concrete composite, including design, processing, performances, curing and maintenance, site application of cement and concrete composites.
It is our pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Full papers, communications, and reviews are all welcome.

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.
