Special Issue Information
Infrastructures could be designed and constructed to withstand various lateral loads without experiencing a significant amount of damage concentration. Having sufficient strength and stiffness to reduce the structural vulnerabilities against serious damages under various loading conditions requires structural elements to have adequate ductility, energy-dissipating capability, stiffness, and durability.
This Special Issue aims to investigate advancements in high-performance steel structures from material to application considering all the possible fields of study: Performance evaluations of steel structures, optimized steel systems, high-temperature reactions, innovative steel lateral resisting systems, high-strength steels, steel rebars, fatigue analysis methodologies, additively manufactured steels, corrosion, application possibilities of new sustainable materials and methods, steel dampers, steel applications, and advanced materials behavior compared with steel. These subjects can be studied from different points of view: mechanical, microstructural, material modelling, steel design, performance analysis, etc.
In summary, the present issue is open to all research pieces involving steel as a structural material in any of its applications, and from any of the possible technical or scientific perspectives.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 2300 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.
