Special Issue "Fiber Reinforced Polymers for Structural Strengthening"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 3 July 2020.
Interests: FRP materials and structures; durability and long-term behavior; testing; finite element analysis
The use of fiber reinforced polymers (FRP) in the construction sector mostly started in 1970–1980s, with several applications in all-composite and hybrid structures, internal reinforcement of new structures and internal/external strengthening of existing structures. Among different sectors, such aerospace, automotive, wind energy, marine and sporting goods, construction continues to be second largest market for composite materials. This achievement is intrinsically related to the research developed by different institutions and researchers worldwide. In spite of that, innovative structural solutions and unprecedented insights on the existing subjects are continually proposed for the composites construction sector. This Special Issue is mostly devoted to these subjects.

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.
