Special Issue "Multi-scale Modeling of Materials and Structures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2019).
Interests: Bio-MEMS/NEMS; biomedical devices; polymers; tissue engineering; metamaterials; additive manufacturing
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Interests: materials modeling; explicit finite element method; discrete element method; nonlinear computational mechanics; wear and contact phenomena; mechanical behavior and fatigue
The present Special Issue is aimed at gathering and presenting the latest developments in multi-scale and multi-physics modeling of materials and structures, especially those linked to final application in industries including: Transport, energy, health, manufacture, architecture, civil engineering and information and communication technologies, among other relevant industrial areas.
The scope of the Special Issue will cover:
- Multi-scale/physics modeling of the synthesis, processing and application of materials;
- Modeling of conventional materials: metals, alloys, ceramics, polymers, composites;
- Modeling of modern materials and structures: multifunctional (smart) materials and structures, nanocomposites, metamaterials, biomaterials and biomimetic materials and structures;
- Promotion of knowledge-based materials and structures for enhanced industrial performance;
- Optimized engineering design by application of advanced multi-scale/physics modeling;
- Sustainability promotion by means of advanced multi-scale/physics modeling;
- Cases of success in health, transport, energy, manufacture, architecture, civil and ICT.
This Special Issue provides an excellent opportunity for those who are studying and working with multi-scale and multi-physics modeling of materials and structures for knowledge-based approaches in advanced industries. Research articles, review articles and communications relating to the previously listed topics are all invited for 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 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.
