Fiber-reinforced polymers (FRP) have gained a huge amount of popularity in the field of strengthening reinforced concrete (RC) structures over the last couple of decades. This is due to the several advantages that the fiber reinforcement offers over the conventional steel reinforcement. However, there are several issues and applications that are still open for research including but not limited to: (i) delamination of FRP and its prevention, (ii) optimizing the strengthening with FRP, (iii) combination of FRP with other strengthening methods, (iv) behavior of FRP at elevated temperatures, (v) application of FRP for the strengthening of deteriorated structures, etc.
This Special Issue will focus on the recent advancements in the application of FRP in the strengthening of RC structures. Through this call, I would like to invite researchers to present their latest research findings through high quality journal papers in the field of the FRP strengthening of RC structures for the benefit of researchers, engineers, industry and students.Jun.

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. Fibers 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.
