Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Textile-reinforced composites offer great advantages for lightweight structures, since their properties can be tailored on different length scales. The variety of design options with regard to their constituents, multiaxial fiber arrangements, and near-net-shape semifinished product configurations is an essential feature of high-performance textiles. Despite being investigated for decades, textile composites are still an extremely interesting research area, spanning from manufacturing technologies via multiscale modeling and experimental testing to multifunctional applications.

This Special Issue will focus on recent progress in the field of tailoring composite properties. Topics can include but are not limited to:

  • Advanced textile manufacturing technologies;
  • Damage-tolerant textile composites;
  • Tailored properties using scale-bridging approaches;
  • Virtual design and digital twins;
  • Multifunctional composite application.

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.
