Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue of Polymers Journal is dedicated to Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites in Structural Engineering. We are expecting to receive papers dealing with cutting-edge issues on research and application of FRP composites in structural engineering. The topics of the special issue includes but not limited to: Seismic Retrofitting using FRP composites, Confinement of concrete columns using FRP composites, Strengthening of masonry and historical structures using FRP composites, External strengthening of concrete, timber and steel structures using FRP composites, Near surface mounting reinforcement using FRP composites, Durability issues of FRP strengthened structures, Fire protection systems for FRP strengthened structures, Practical applications and case studies, Internally reinforced concrete (with FRP rebars), All composite structures using FRP profiles, plates and shells, Testing and characterisation of FRP elements for structural engineering, Health monitoring of FRP structures.

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).
