Dynamic mechanical properties of materials and structures play a significant role in the development of modern science and technology. They have a broad and proven range of applications in various engineering fields, including aerospace, civil engineering, rail traffic, automotive, marine technology, energy, architecture, military, and sports. Developing high-performance materials and structures and revealing their dynamic mechanical mechanism are emerging topics that have received wide attention. Recent advances in dynamic mechanical properties of materials and structures have provided possibilities for many novel applications of smart materials and structures in highly demanding engineering fields.
This Special Issue will publish scientific papers and reviews related to the dynamic behavior of materials and structures, from their characterization to their application in industrial problems, such as their impact, blast and high-rate loading. Works that result in fundamental insights that benefit engineering design to resist strong dynamic loading are relevant to this Special Issue. Scientifically designed and documented experimental studies that advance knowledge in the dynamic mechanical properties of materials subjected to dynamic loading are of high relevance and interest. On this basis, the experimental studies should be accompanied by analysis of the experimental data and appropriate conclusions. The incorporation of theoretical analysis and/or numerical simulations to support the experimental findings will enhance the depth and quality of the research reported and make it more compelling.

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. Sustainability 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 2400 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.
