Abstract



Roller Compacted Concrete; 

 Mass Concrete; 

Fly ash; 

Mechanical Property; 

Thermal Property

One of the biggest advantages of Roller Compacted Concrete is faster and economic construction along with lesser heat generation. It is primarily used in mass concrete work like in Pavements, Ports and Dams. In this study the properties of Roller Compacted Concrete such as Vee-Bee density, Vee-Bee time, initial setting time, final setting time and compressive strength are studied for twelve mixes prepared using two types of fly ash sources, three cement sources and three admixture types. Furthermore, on one of the mixes with the least cement to fly ash ratio mechanical and thermal property related tests were performed. These tests include split tensile strength, direct tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, Poisson’s ratio, apparent cohesion, angle of internal friction, specific heat of concrete by Transient Plane Source (TPS) method and Coefficient of Thermal expansion of Concrete. From the study it was found that compressive strength at 365 days is nearly two times that of 28 days. Also, there is negligible effect of adding admixture on compressive strength of roller compacted concrete. Current study shows that finer the fly ash, higher the compressive strength at later stage. The study on mechanical and thermal properties of Roller Compacted Concrete indicates that results are in line with Indian Standard Specification and Internationally reported values.

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.
