“Fire Safety 2019”is a continuation of the previous and successful Special Issue “Fire Safety”.
The fire safety community continues to face challenges in fire safety research and design, although significant progress has been made over the last several decades. This challenge arises from the complexity associated with high, long, and deep infrastructures, including high rise buildings, long tunnels, and underground spaces, from toxic and high fire-load materials used in industry and residence to integration with green building objectives, etc.
Simultaneously, fire safety design benefits from progressive understanding of fire physics and chemistry, human behavior, and structural fire performance, from great capability in numerical simulation to novel concepts in performance-based design methods, etc. This Special Issue will focus on all of fire safety aspects. Researchers can submit papers dealing with any aspect related to fire safety.

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. Safety is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
