Special Issue "Applications of Thin-Walled Structures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2016).
Interests: construction materials; steel-concrete composite structures and structural fire engineering
Thin-walled structures are widely used in building construction, bridge construction, storage racks, transmission towers, automotive, ships, aircraft, etc. Compared to normal structures, thin-walled structures are easier to make into different types of cross-sections. But this flexibility also leads to complex structural behavior; different buckling modes or even combined failure modes can occur. In recent years, the advances in structural materials, analytical methods and design tools have greatly promoted the development and applications of thin-walled structures in various fields. This Special Issue aims to collect the most recent advances from the global research and development community regarding new theories, experiment, design methods and applications.

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.
