Special Issue "Smart Sensors for Damage Detection"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 5 November 2021.
This Special Issue is aimed at the submission of both review and original research articles related to smart sensors in the framework of a structural health monitoring (SHM) system. This includes sensor technologies that automatically detect damage based on its direct sensing principle. On the other hand, a smart sensor or smart sensor array may consist of one or multiple identical sensors providing indirect information about damage by suitable signal processing techniques. The Special Issue “Smart Sensors for Damage Detection” welcomes contributions in this field including, for example, acoustic transducers, electromagnetic sensors, and optical sensors.
It is expected that the sensor and its underlying sensing principle has been properly described and its damage detection performance has been tested in a relevant environment. Numerical investigations may also help to provide additional insights. In any case, it is required to show experimental results from a dedicated laboratory experiment possibly combined with a demonstration in the field.
Potential applications include aviation and maritime industry, but also pipeworks, bridges, and other technical structures.

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. Sensors 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 2200 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.
