Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The International Conference on Advanced Engineering and Technology (ICAET 2022) covers a wide range of fields in science and engineering technology and aims to bring together engineering technology expertise. During the conference, there should be substantial time for presentation and discussion. In addition, poster sessions and exhibitions offer ample opportunity for information exchange among delegates and participants, especially for those who are looking for new opportunities between presenters and participants.

Aside from these conference papers, general Special Issue papers can be accepted for submission to our Special Issue. Attendees will find various activities useful in bringing together a diverse group of engineers and technologists from across disciplines for the generation of new ideas, collaboration potential, and business opportunities.

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. 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 2300 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.

The present study evaluated the influences of different temperatures during heat treatment on the microstructure and mechanical properties of the manganese bronze alloy. During heating, there was a decrease of stored energy in the form of crystal defects due to the mechanisms of rearrangement and the annihilation of dislocations, followed by nucleation and grain growth. Initially, the samples were drawn using 34% cold work. Then, the specimens were heat-treated for one hour with different temperatures ranging from 200 to 750 °C, increasing by 50 °C for each sample. The chemical composition characterization was determined by X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (XRF). The mechanical property characterization involved the Vickers hardness, tensile strength, yield strength, and elongation. For the microstructural analysis of the samples, optical microscopy and scanning electron microscopy were used. The results showed an increase of elongation and decrease of the Vickers hardness and tensile and yield strengths with the increasing annealing temperature. The Hollomon model was used to investigate the strain-hardening behavior in all specimens. The (n) strain-hardening coefficient and the (K) strength coefficient were calculated, and the correlation with the increase of temperature occurred with the increase of n and variation of K after the recrystallization temperature.

Glass-fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP) decks have been widely used in the rehabilitation and construction of bridges as a replacement for conventional deck materials, such as steel, concrete, and wood. In this study, an analysis method for checking the local safety of joints in adhesively connected GFRP decks under bidirectional bending due to traffic wheel loads is newly presented. This method can be applied for designing and evaluating the joints of other FRP decks. The orthotropic material properties of the deck were approximately assumed according to the test results and previous research. Three-dimensional solid elements were used to simulate the local behavior of the adhesive and deck substrates at the joints. Global deflections of the deck and local deformations of the adhesive were evaluated for serviceability. The local stresses in the adhesive and deck substrate are evaluated at the joint to check for local failure modes of the joint under serviceability and ultimate limit states. The analysis results indicate that local failures of the adhesive and deck substrate at the joint occurred. Recommendations for avoiding these local failures and performing more precise analysis are suggested. Full article
