Special Issue "Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC)"
A special issue of Infrastructures (ISSN 2412-3811).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2021) | Viewed by 224
Interests: ultra-high-performance concrete; strain rate effects on the response of materials; impact resistance of construction materials; self-sensing smart concrete
Much research has been conducted on the development, characterization, and application of ultra-high-performance concretes (UHPCs) during the last decade. UHPCs are generally characterized by extremely high compressive strength of more than 150 MPa, high tensile strength exceeding 15 MPa, and tensile strain capacity higher than 0.5%. For popular practical application of UHPCs, it is now urgent to develop a suitable classification system for various UHPCs and design code for the structures made by UHPCs. This Special Issue will include broad issues related to the material and mechanical response of UHPCs and their applications.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Infrastructures 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.
