This study has been conducted to diminish the carbon footprint of concrete and to assess the performance of geopolymer concrete by completely replacing river sand with Manufactured sand (M-Sand) and Electronic Waste (E-waste). Fly ash and Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag (GGBFS) are used in various combinations as a cementitious material in geopolymer concrete. The characteristic strength of geopolymer concrete is obtained by completely replacing fine aggregate with E-waste and M-sand with different percentages. An optimum percentage replacement is arrived at by studying the physical, chemical, and mechanical characteristics. The sizes of the E-waste particles used in this research are between 0.3mm and 0.15 mm and it has a deep colour with a specific gravity of 2.68. Maximum compressive strength of 35.8 N/mm2 on 28 days is achieved for the optimal mix proportion of 80% fly ash, 20% GGBFS, 80% M-sand, and 20% E-waste as fine aggregate. Maximum flexural strength obtained is 6.54 N/mm2 for mix proportion 1 and split tensile strength is 4.75 N/mm2 resulted in mix proportion 2. The use of fly ash, E-waste, and M-sand in geopolymer concrete reduce the environmental pollution and depletion of natural river sand. The results of this experimental study very well match with Indian standards of concrete.

13/04/2022 Fraudulent Emails Impersonating Our Journal: We noticed that some emails are sent to some people impersonating our journal staff as sender and requesting recipients to follow some links. Our journal and staff has nothing to do with these emails and please do not follow the given links. Senders seem to have malicious aims. The emails include a portion of some of our previous emails to the journal users and researchers. This is only to deceive the receiver and make them trust the email. Do not follow any links or perform suspicious actions specified in these emails. Please, check the sender info carefully. Even the sender address or name resembles the journal related words they are different, generally in an easily noticeable way.


09/03/2022 Reviewer Awards: The reviewers are the anonymous heroes of the publishing society. Reviewing manuscripts is not an easy task but it is critical to the advancement of scientific knowledge. Even if authors take credit for publishing papers, the recognition of the reviewers are highly limited for their work. Therefore, our journal announces the reviewers that participated in editorial processes of the submitted articles in a yearly basis. Now, we expand our efforts to appreciate the valuable contribution of our reviewers and start to give Outstanding Reviewer Awards and Best Review Awards.


More info can be found at Reviewer Awards section. 


29/12/2021 Best Paper Award: According to the Advisory Board decision, the paper authored by Sahar Ismail, Wassim Raphael, Emmanuel Durand entitled as “Case study of the Beirut port explosion using 3D laser scan and nonlinear finite element model” is awarded the 2021 Best Paper Award of Research on Engineering Structures and Materials (RESM). We congratulate the authors and wish them a continued success.  



29/12/2021 Most Cited Paper Award: According to the Editorial Board evaluation, the paper authored by Sinan Kutluay, Orhan Baytar, Ömer Şahin entitled as “Adsorption kinetics, equilibrium and thermodynamics
of gas-phase toluene onto char produced from almond shells" is awarded the 2021 Most Cited Paper Award of Research on Engineering Structures and Materials (RESM). We congratulate the authors and wish them a continued success.
