Special Issue "Numerical Modelling of Mechanical Behaviour of Carbon and Non-carbon Nanotubes and their Complex Structures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 October 2020.
Interests: mechanical properties of nanomaterials: numerical modeling of mechanical behavior of carbon nanotubes; mechanical properties of bulk materials and thin films: modeling and numerical simulation, inverse analysis; metal forming: modeling, numerical simulation and applications
Systematic research efforts have been directed towards developing nanostructured materials, such as carbon nanotubes and their complex structures. The recent success in assembling carbon and non-carbon nanotubes together creates opportunities for the incorporation of these innovative multilayered structures in nanodevices, and in applications for nanoelectronics and biomedicine.
Experimental studies towards determination of the properties of carbon and non-carbon nanotubes are constrained by experimental difficulties regarding the characterization of nanomaterials at the atomic scale. For this reason, the theoretical studies—both analytical and numerical, directed towards predicting their mechanical properties—have received much attention.
This Special Issue will focus on the modeling and numerical simulation of the mechanical properties of carbon and non-carbon nanotubes and their complex structures, such as heterojunctions, nanotube-reinforced composites, and nanotube networks. Achievements in theoretical modeling of the assembly of carbon and non-carbon nanotubes into multilayered heterostructures and optimization of their design are also of great importance.

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.
