Special Issue "Advanced Structural Health Monitoring in Materials"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 June 2020.
Interests: distrubuted sensors; optical integration; non-intrusive monitoring
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Structural health monitoring of materials using in-situ sensors predicts the lifetime and safety of infrastructure, such as bridges and pipelines, and vehicles, especially aircraft with composite materials, and mechanical devices such as wind turbines. In addition, it holds the promise of providing real-time data for adaptive mechanical devices. While this issue is not limited to fiber optic sensors, these sensors, particularly distributed sensors including fiber Bragg gratings, have the ability to be easily integrated and provide extensive data at high speed. Besides advances in the sensors themselves, this Special Issue is seeking innovation in the integration and connectivity of such sensors.

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.
