Special Issue "Numerical and Analytical Modeling of Anisotropic Fiber-Based Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 July 2020.
Fiber-based materials, such as wood, paper, textile fabrics, and composite materials, are widely used in different fields of application. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Wood composites as building materials;
- Paper- and paperboard-based products as packaging materials;
- Textile-reinforced composites for structural applications in automotive, aerospace, and other industries;
- Coated textiles for membrane building constructions.
Their advantages are low weight, flexible adaptability to complex geometries, and excellent specific structural properties. Their material properties are thus adjustable to the individual requirements of processing and construction. Numerical modeling on different length scales supports the design of structures and processes. Considerable progress has been made in recent years concerning simulating the mechanical responses of fiber-based anisotropic structures and materials to a variety of static and dynamic loadings, including modeling of damage and failure.
This Special Issue will focus on recent progress in the numerical and analytical modeling of anisotropic fiber-based materials. Topics can include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Modeling textile fabrics on different length scales;
- Process and structural models for paper- and paperboard-based materials;
- Modeling of wood composites;
- Laminated multi-layer composites and fiber-reinforced polymers.
I would like to invite you to submit contributions presenting your recent research articles, reviews, and brief communications revealing new trends in models for fiber-based materials.
Dr. Thomas Gereke
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.
