Concrete is the most commonly used construction material across the globe. In view of achieving sustainable development, the use of blended cements is becoming more prominent nowadays. Many research studies are being carried out across the globe on addition of different additives to enhance the properties of cement and concrete which also includes different types of fibrous materials. In this study, the effect of addition of glass microfiber on physical and chemical properties of PPC was studied for 0.2%, 0.4% and 1.0% by weight of cement. Mechanical properties such as compressive strength, flexural strength, modulus of elasticity, split tensile strength and drying shrinkage of concrete made with PPC cement with and without glass microfiber at water to cement ratio of 0.50 were studied. Durability properties such as RCPT and air permeability were also evaluated. For study at elevated temperatures, concrete samples were exposed to temperatures of 200OC and 600OC for duration of 1 hour. From the experimental investigation carried out, compressive strength was observed to improve by 13.6 % for PPC containing glass microfiber in comparison to control PPC. Reduction in cracks due to plastic shrinkage of concrete was observed on addition of glass micro fibre in PPC. Drying shrinkage of concrete was observed to decrease on addition of glass micro fibre in PPC. Other mechanical and durability properties of concrete made with PPC with and without glass micro fibre were observed to be comparable. No significant improvement in mechanical properties due to addition of glass micro fibres was observed upon exposure of concrete to elevated temperatures.

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.
