Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Optical fiber sensors (OFs) are a relatively new technology used to measure strain, temperature, and accelerations in situ to monitor the structural performance of civil engineering structures in aerospace and mechanical engineering industries, etc. This technology acts as an extension of strain gauges and other methods used to monitor structures in all scales from scaled-down physical models to real structures. This development is relevant to the need for structural health monitoring (SHM), performance-based design, and improved and versatile methods in experimental mechanics. In this Special Issue, papers reporting on the advanced use of OFS in research and industry are welcome.

Prof. Dr. Michael Sakellariou

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Sensors 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.
