Special Issue "Mechanical Behavior of Composite Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 May 2020.
One of the main research lines and work in the field of composites was, is and always will be the improvement of their mechanical properties. The appearance of this type of material was decisive in the evolution of materials due to its high mechanical properties. Although they at first appeared to have only advantages, as time has passed, multiple characterization tests have shown weak points in these materials. An example would be the resistance to interlaminar fracture in a material constituted from the stacking of different layers. For this reason, the mechanical characterization of composites, their improvement, their weak points, and the way in which they can be overcome, for example using nanoparticles, are considered interesting points. In short, all contributions that allow for the dissemination of the best knowledge of this exciting family of materials from the point of view of their mechanical properties will be covered in this Special Issue.

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. 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 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.
