As is well-known, for decades, civil engineers have dealt with different types of composite materials, including wood (natural composites), plywood (laminated natural composites), and concrete (particular composites). The noteworthy mechanical properties of advanced composite materials, for instance, high values of specific stiffness, specific strength, and high corrosion resistance, have made these materials very appealing for civil engineering applications. In recent years, several major national and international research programs were launched to investigate the feasibility of using advanced polymer composites on both seismic and environment-sensitive fields. This includes the use of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composites as internal/or external reinforcement, as well as building entire structures, such as bridges and industrial frame-structures, from FRP materials. The main aim of this Special Issue is to cover a wide range of critical topics concerning the connections between structural FRP members.Luciano Feo
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. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1600 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.
