Special Issue "Innovative Applications of Materials to Industrial Design"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2021.
The Special Issue aims to provide a forum for the discussion of recent advances in the use of innovative materials and the innovative use of classical materials. The focus is centered on applications to industrial design at large scales in addition to architecture and urbanism.
The scope of the Special Issue includes research on new materials with enhanced properties. This enhancement can be related to mechanical, environmental, and economic issues. Studies on the perceived quality of materials as well as new processes that render innovative materials or material properties are also of interest, as are studies which examine the lifecycle assessment or environmental impact of products.
