Abstract



Self-compacting concrete; 



Ultrafine slag; 



Hardened properties

Self- Compacting concrete (SCC) is a special type of concrete that is able to flow and compact under its own weight and can occupy all the spaces in the form without any vibration effect, and at the same time cohesive enough to be handled without bleeding or segregation. The required compaction properties are achieved by adding super-plasticizers and mineral admixtures such as fly ash, rice husk ash, silica fume, ultrafine slag etc. The utilization of these treated industrial by-products as cement replacement will not only help to achieve an economical SCC mix, but it is envisaged that it may improve the hardened properties, microstructure and consequently the durability of concrete. This provides solution to disposal problems and other environmental pollution issues created by these otherwise waste products. This paper presents the results of an experimental study aimed at producing SCC mixes incorporating constant dosage of fly ash (i.e., 30%) and varying dosage of ultrafine slag (i.e., 0-60%) as supplementary cementing materials. Also, this paper gives the comparison of these SCC mixes in terms of their properties like compressive, young’s modulus and flexural strengths. The fresh concrete properties are also included in the study. Addition of constant dosage of fly ash (i.e., 30%) and ultrafine slag (i.e., 30%) showed a significant improvement in fresh and hardened properties of SCC.

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.
