Special Issue "Advanced Analysis and Technology in Fire Science and Engineering"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 April 2021.
Interests: fire dynamics; fire physics and chemistry; fire and materials; fire simulation; compartment fire; smoke; fire detector; measurements; performance-based fire safety design (PBD)
The purpose of this Special Issue is to publish high-quality works obtained from experimental, theoretical, and computational investigations on the fundamentals and applications of fire science and engineering. Since the field of fire science and engineering covers a very wide range from fundamental research to practical application, there are not enough specialized journals where relevant researchers can share in-depth research results. This Special Issue is open to research that can help to better understand complex fire phenomena and ultimately contribute to fire safety design. Potential topics include but are not limited to experimental, theoretical, and numerical simulation studies of fire physics and chemistry, fire dynamics, measurements in fire environments, fire detection and suppression system, fire safety design and management, assessment of fire risk and fire investigation, etc.
We welcome the submission of original works, reviews, and short communications that provide novel insights related to the multidisciplinary fire science and engineering research fields.
Prof. Dr. Cheol-Hong Hwang
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 papers will be 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. Applied Sciences 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 1800 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.
