Special Issue "Strength and Fracture Mechanism of Construction Materials and Structural Components"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 August 2023) | Viewed by 10753
It is very important to know about the strength and fracture behaviour of construction materials in construction industry practices before applying them in construction projects. Research is always ongoing to develop and offer new materials and to answer all of the fundamental questions about their properties and functionality. However, at the same time, knowledge about the structural behaviours of new and common construction materials for different structural components should be developed and deployed. The aim of this Special Issue is to publish outstanding papers presenting the strength properties and fracture mechanisms of construction materials and their structural performances.
This Special Issue will also present selected papers from the 5th International Conference on Material Strength and Applied Mechanics (MSAM 2022). The 5th International Conference on Material Strength and Applied Mechanics (MSAM 2022) will be held in Qingdao, China, from August 19 to 22, 2022 (http://www.msamconf.org/). The annual conference was launched in Japan (2018) with the aim of building an international platform for academics and experts to exchange research results and experiences and discuss the challenges they have encountered and new technologies in the field of materials strength and applied mechanics. MSAM 2022 is expecting to achieve more fruitful results on the latest techniques and technologies in the field.

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 2600 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.
