Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Construction materials have played a major role, from ancient times, in the development of built environments and civilizations. Ground-breaking advancement in the area of construction materials occurred during the last decade. This Special Issue of Materials is on “New and Emerging Construction Materials”. We invite you to submit high-quality research or review papers to this Special Issue, with an emphasis on innovative new and emerging materials. Some areas of interests for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, green cement, photo-catalytic cement, geopolymer mortar and concrete, hempcrete masonry, carbon-negative materials, nano-concrete, nano-particles modified asphalt and asphaltic concrete, micro- and nano-fibre reinforced composites, anti-seismic reinforcement, see-through or translucent concrete, hydroceramics, floating concrete, translucent wood, aerogel or air glass insulation, nano-coatings, and self-cleansing materials. The papers on smart construction materials, such as bio-concrete, self-healing sealants or coatings, shape-memory alloy or shape-shifting metal, and self-sensing materials will also be considered. Papers will be accepted for this Special Issue after going through a rigorous peer-review procedure.
