Special Issue "Geomaterials for Transportation Infrastructures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 March 2021).
Interests: cement; asphalt; aggregate; soil; fiber-reinforcing; pavement; sustainability
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Interests: transportation geotechnics; landslides; expansive soil; intelligent infrastructures; finite element modeling; climate effect on transportation infrastructure; recycled materials
We are pleased to announce this Special Issue for the journal Infrastructures. This Special Issue focuses on the properties, behavior and performance of geomaterials used in all types of transportation infrastructure from an interdisciplinary perspective. The objective of this issue is to provide cutting-edge knowledge and future prospective of the material aspects of transportation infrastructures.
Topics to be covered will include, but are not limited to, properties of both saturated and unsaturated geomaterials such as soils, aggregates, soil and rock mixtures, asphalt, concrete, geosynthetics, and recycled and alternative materials for innovative and sustainable design and construction of transportation infrastructures. The behavior of stabilized geomaterials such as mixtures of soils with cement, lime, fly ash, polymers, geosynthetics and reinforcement of constructed layers and interlayers, climatic effects are also welcomed. Case studies that describe original/innovative work applicable to construction, maintenance and the repair of transportation infrastructure are also strongly encouraged.Dr. Md Rashadul Islam

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. Infrastructures 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 1400 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.
