Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue, “Modeling and Testing of Laminated Glass”, will address advances in experimental testing and numerical or analytical modeling of the mechanical response of laminated glass plates, including fracture. So far, laminated glass structures have found many applications for engineering, industry, and the military. In the context of civil engineering, security windows, doors or walls are used in embassies, airports, shops, banks, or recently as transparent walls to stop potential terrorist attacks at important monuments. In addition to structures preventing human-made threats, laminated glass is also an attractive material for buildings that are supposed to withstand extreme loading from natural events, such as seismicity, extreme winds or other climatic exposures.

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit original research papers within the scope of this Special Issue.

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.
