Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This is a special issue for the extended versions of the best papers of the SMAR2013 conference (www.smar-2013.org) in the field of rehabilitation of civil structures using FRP composites. The topics are included but not limited to:

  • External strengthening of concrete, timber and steel structures using FRP composites
  • Strengthening of masonry and historic structures using FRP composites
  • Confinement of concrete columns using FRP composites
  • Near surface mounting reinforcement using FRP composites
  • Seismic Retrofitting using FRP composites
  • Durability issues of FRP strengthened structures as related to harsh environments
  • Fire protection systems for FRP strengthened structures
  • Practical applications and case studies.

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Polymers 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 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs).
