Special Issue "Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC): Current and Future Research"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 August 2023) | Viewed by 11694
Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) is a cementitious material that is providing new horizon in constructed facilities and allowing development of innovative solutions to many structural engineering problems that even few years ago seemed challenging. The durability aspect of UHPC makes it a material of choice where service life design of constructed facilities, such as bridges, takes on a high priority. In recent years, the advancement in the field of UHPC has progressed in many fronts. The unit cost of UHPC is being reduced, mainly because of development of Non-Proprietary UHPC. This trend will continue. Development of Non-Proprietary UHPC, now makes UHPC, more than ever a material of choice. Application of UHPC has varied greatly, from non-structural applications, such as cladding in high rise building to connections for pre-fabricated bridge elements. High Compressive strength, high tensile strength, significant post cracking ductility and excellent bond characteristic of UHPC, allows using UHPC strategically and develop completed structures that are economical and long lasting. Additive manufacturing or 3-D printing is a new frontier for application of UHPC. With time, UHPC has a potential to make revolution in construction in years to come.
It is my pleasure to invite you to submit a manuscript for this Special Issue. Research papers, short communications and review articles are equally welcome.
Thank you very much!

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.
