Interests: structural safety and reliability; dynamic response analysis; damage and fatigue prediction; material models applying multiscale techniques
Modelling and simulation has become a key tool in Engineering and Materials Science. It complements experimental testing and also has the potential to study and identify physical phenomena that cannot be detected experimentally. It has been successfully used to support the design and optimization of new materials and structures. This Special Issue is devoted to computational modeling of coating. In addition, manuscripts on innovative computational methods, which have the potential to be applied to coating or coating materials, can be submitted to this Special Issue. They include approaches ranging from quantum mechanics and molecular dynamics, coarse-grained models, and Monte-Carlo simulations up to classical continuum-based approaches, based on finite element methods or isogeometric analyses. Manuscript covering the following topics are particularly welcome:
- Computational methods for moving boundary problems, including fracture, delamination, fluid structure interaction, multi-phase fluid flow, and/or their application to modeling coating.
- Computational modelling of interface problems.
- Nano-scale modeling of coatings, including QM, MD, UA-MD, CG-MD.
- Multiscale methods and their applications to coatings.
- Optimization and Uncertainty Analysis.
- Multiphysics modeling of coatings.
- Phase field models.
- Computational Methods for identification and characterization; this includes also machine learning approaches.

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. Coatings 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 1600 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.
