Special Issue Information
Structural ceramics are developing vigorously toward the direction of high performance, which benefits from advances in the neighboring fields of mechanics, computing science, advanced manufacturing, advanced characterization, engineering, and their fruitful interdisciplinary integration. Over the last few decades, the rapid development of unprecedented computational power, novel mechanical design, advanced manufacturing techniques, and advanced characterization techniques have boosted the development of high-performance structural ceramics and hybrid materials, and their engineering applications.
Therefore, the purpose of this Special Issue is to present high-quality scientific papers to readers who share their interest in high-performance structural ceramics and hybrid materials. The main topics will cover novel structural ceramics for extreme in-service environments (aerospace, nuclear, armor, medical, etc.), multifunctional structural ceramics and metamaterials (lightweight, load-bearing capacity, electromagnetic, acoustic, thermal, energy, structure–function integration, etc.), constitutive modeling and simulation of structural ceramics, novel mechanical design for structural ceramics (negative Poisson’s ratio design, zero thermal expansion design, etc.), advanced manufacturing techniques for structural ceramics (3D or 4D printing, novel sintering approaches, etc.), as well as advanced characterization techniques for structural ceramics. Particular attention will be paid to manuscripts combining design, experiments, and models, as well as innovative techniques.
We are pleased to invite you to submit a manuscript (communication, full length article, or review) to this Special Issue of Materials MDPI on “High-Performance Structural Ceramics and Hybrid Materials”.

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.
