Special Issue "Advances in Mass Timber and Timber Hybrid Lateral Load Resisting Systems"
A special issue of Buildings (ISSN 2075-5309).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2018)
There is a great potential for timber to be used as structural material beyond the more common low-rise residential light-frame construction. The prospect of building larger timber structures comes with certain challenges, amongst them increased lateral force created by wind and earthquakes. Two of the most promising solutions to this problem involve the notions of “mass timber”, such as cross-laminated timber and hybrid constructions that strategically combine two (or more) materials, such as timber–steel and timber–concrete systems. This Special Issue will provide insight into state-of-the-art research on the challenges and innovative solutions of adopting mass timber and timber–hybrid structural systems. Considering the global need for more sustainable building solutions, this Special Issue is of international interest.

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 550 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.
