Interests: fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs); concrete; high-strength concrete (HSC); confinement; concrete-filled FRP tube (CFFT); waste-based concrete
Fiber-reinforced polymers are multipurpose materials widely used in advanced applications due to their excellent properties, e.g., their low production time, ability to produce long-term cost saving, light weight, and high durability properties. This Special Issue of Polymers is dedicated to fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs). We are expecting to receive papers dealing with cutting-edge issues on the research and application of FRP composites in different areas.
The topics of this Special Issue include but are not limited to the durability and mechanical properties of FRPs, FRPs that are manufactured using different types of fibers (including recycled and natural fibers), FRPs containing nanomaterials, composite members manufactured with FRPs, retrofitting with FRP composites, the long-term properties of FRPs, fire protection for FRPs, and applications of FRPs. Both original contributions and reviews are welcome.

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. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1800 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.
