Structural mechanics is an important field of engineering. The main goal of structural mechanics research is to ensure that the structures are safe and durable to prevent catastrophic situations, which can cause loss of lives, environmental pollution, and financial loses. Depending on the usage of the structure and the conditions that it is subjected to requires a special treatment during the analysis. Specifically, marine structures are subjected to harsh environmental conditions due to marine environment which can cause several different damage mechanisms including damages due to fatigue and corrosion. This Special Issue on “Marine Structures” will consider a wide range of areas related to marine structures including, but not limited to:
- Structural analysis of ship structures
- Structural analysis of offshore platforms
- Structural analysis of naval vessels
- Structural analysis of pipelines and subsea systems
- Risk and reliability based approaches applied to marine structures
- Structural health monitoring of marine structures
- Ice-structure interactions
- Collision mechanics
- Inspection and repair of marine structures
- Fatigue and fracture
- Marine composites
This Special Issue will provide a compilation of numerical, experimental and analytical studies related to “Marine Structures” research.

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. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering 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 1800 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.
