Special Issue "Advancements in Thermal and Energy Geotechnics"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 20 May 2021.
Interests: Thermal and energy geotechnics; Energy foundations; Soil improvement; Multiscale soil behavior from microstructure to large-scale; Coupled phenomena in earth materials; Resilient infrastructure
This special issue of Energies covers the latest advancements in thermal and energy geotechnics including, among others, carbon sequestration, hydraulic fracturing for energy and gas extractions, deep geological repositories for nuclear waste, site investigations and foundation design for wind turbines, frozen soils, and energy foundations and geo-structures. The topics of interest extend from fundamental and theoretical knowledge to practical and filed-scale tests. Articles in a wide variety of topics will be considered for publications including, but not limited to: thermomechanical behaviour of earth materials (soils and rocks) across the length- and time-scales, thermo-hydro-chemo-mechanical response of soils and rocks, innovative site characterizations and design methods for the foundations of offshore wind turbines, behaviour of energy foundations, advances in predicting the behaviour of frozen soils, and mechanisms underlying hydraulic fracturing of deep geological deposits. Comprehensive review articles are also welcomed. Innovative numerical models, laboratory tests, or field experiments are of interest. Contact the Guest Editor with an abstract to determine suitability of your idea(s) to this edition and potential discounts for publication fees.

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. Energies 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 2000 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.
