Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pipelines, which are regarded as blood vessels in the industrial field, are widely used to transport oil and natural gas, ammonia, alcohol fuels, coal and ore, hydrogen, water, carbon dioxide, etc. By far, pipelines are the most efficient and economical way to transport fluid media. 

However, due to the complex and hazardous transport environment, fracture, distortion, leakage, corrosion, etc., can easily occur in pipelines. Corrosion is one of the main causes of pipeline failure and has always been a bottleneck problem affecting the structural strength and failure analysis of pipelines. 

As mentioned above, the failure of pipelines threatens people’s lives and property. Therefore, research on the structural integrity and failure mechanism of pipelines, especially of corroded ones, is a vital task to meet the design requirements of safer ones.

For this Special Issue, we would like to welcome original research manuscripts as well as methodological and review articles on the structural strength and failure analysis of corroded pipelines. Contributions on the following topics will therefore be welcome:

  • Structural integrity assessment;
  • Straight and elbow pipes, and special pipelines;
  • Pressure vessels in industrial applications;
  • Pipeline safety under extreme loads;
  • Failure of pipelines under complex loads;
  • Pipeline burst and buckling;
  • Pipeline vibration;
  • Pipeline connection;
  • Pipeline leaks;
  • Fatigue and fracture;
  • Life prediction;
  • Pipeline measurement and inspection;
  • Design and analysis;
  • Safety and reliability;
  • Finite and boundary element methods;
  • Fluid–structure interaction;
  • High temperature, high pressure.

This list is not restrictive, and studies on related topics are also welcome.

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.
