Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to contribute original research, comprehensive review articles, or short communications to this Special Issue titled “Manufacturing Defects in Composite Materials and Structures”.

This Special Issue will cover all ongoing research on the following topics:

  1. Advanced experimental techniques for defect characterization/detection;
  2. The numerical modeling/simulation of process-induced defect generation;
  3. Numerical methods to predict the influence of defects on mechanical properties.

Through this Special Issue, we aim to provide a platform for the exchange and dissemination of recent research results pertaining to manufacturing defects in composite materials and structures.

We look forward to your receiving your contributions to this Special Issue.

Dr. Dmytro Vasiukov
Prof. Dr. Jan A. Ivens

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Materials 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 2600 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.
