 Temperature Sweep

Waste propellant impregnated fire clay brick is investigated for variation in thermal conductivity, thermal diffusivity and specific heat of sample, for different propellant percentage, temperature sweep and propellant percentage. Propellant quantities of 0.0%, 2.5%, 5.0% and 7.5% by weight is added to the green mix of brick and baking in horizontal and vertical direction is carried out for samples made to the size of diameter 12.6+0.1 mm and thickness 2-3 mm. Temperature sweep from 30oC to 100oC is carried out for characterization of brick for thermal diffusivity and specific heat, by using laser flash technique. Higher propellant impregnation by weight results in lowering of thermal diffusivity, enhanced specific heat and reduction in thermal conductivity. Vertical baking results in better thermal insulation properties than horizontal insulation for the same 7.5% propellant impregnated bricks. The thermal conductivity from an average value of 0.7 W/m.K for reference brick is observed. 7.5% propellant impregnation by weight in brick may result in thermal conductivity of less than 0.5 W/m.K during vertical baking. This substantial reduction definitely leads to an insulating solution to construction, with an eco-friendly disposal solution.

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.
