Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent decades, an increasing number of civil structures have required an aerodynamic design to evaluate and study their static and dynamic behaviours under wind excitation. In particular, slender structures with innovative shapes and non-conventional façades have required numerical and experimental studies to achieve the indications given by standards. Studies performed on recent structures can provide examples to follow for innovative research in wind engineering. In particular, some topics that can be considered very topical in terms of both experimental and numerical aspects include:

  • Wind loads on façades
  • Long-span bridge aerodynamic behaviour
  • High-rise building aerodynamic behaviour
  • Wind effects on roofs
  • Atmospheric modelling for civil applications
  • Field measurements and health monitoring
  • Urban flow dispersion modelling
  • Wind environment/human comfort

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 2400 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.
