Special Issue "High-Performance Concrete—Experimental Behavior and Structural Computational Modelling and Design"
A special issue of Buildings (ISSN 2075-5309).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2019
High-performance concrete (HPC) refers generally to concrete with higher durability and structural properties compared to normal-strength concrete (NSC). The advantages of HPC for constructing buildings and bridges are many; however, the structural behaviour of HPC can be different from NSC. Thus, designing structural HPC elements is not a trivial matter and requires special knowledge and data that are not always available.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present the state-of-the-art research performed on the structural behaviour of HPC including experimental results, computational modelling, case studies, design aspects, and comprehensive review papers. This Special Issue will provide the engineering community with a collection of high-quality and peer-reviewed papers addressing different aspects of the structural behaviour of HPC.

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. Buildings 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 650 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.
