This Special Issue deals with analytical and computational methods in the mechanics of beams, plates, and shells. The main areas of interest of this edition include linear and nonlinear models of elasticity and plasticity of these structures; thermoelasticity; problems of vibrations, wave propagation, stability of beams, plates, and shells; heat conductivity; microheterogeneous structures; layered structures; and structures made of materials with special properties – metamaterials, auxetic materials, porous materials, biomaterials, and functionally graded materials.
We invite you to submit your scientific papers on the latest research results in these aspects of the mechanics of beams, plates, and shells, with an emphasis on applications in all areas of mechanics, biomechanics, and civil engineering.

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 2000 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.
