Abstract


GGBS;


Ultra fine rice husk ash;


Geopolymer concrete


Sustainability analysis

In this study, The study investigates the production of sustainable geopolymer concrete using industrial wastes such as Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag and ultra fine Rice Husk Ash (URA). The effect of partial substitution of GGBS with URA in proportions such as 0, 5, 10, 15 and 20 percent is investigated for workability, drying shrinkage, compressive and tensile strength over different ages of concrete ranging from 7 to 90 days. A micro structural investigation through Scanning Electron Microscope and X-Ray Diffraction Analysis is carried out to analyze the micro structure of matrix. Further a sustainability analysis is conducted over the geopolymer specimens through the parameters such as cost efficiency, energy efficiency and CO2 efficiency. Results from the tests indicate a significant enhancement in workability, compressive and tensile strength and decrease in the drying shrinkage values with 15 percent utilization of URA in GPC. Micro structural study also exhibited a compact and dense microstructure of the specimen. Results clearly portray the coexistence of both calcium based product and sodium based product. Sustainability analysis indicates increased cost efficiency and Eco efficiency and reduction in the energy consumption with the utilization of 15 percent of URA. The study also reported the possibility of reduction of carbon footprint by increasing the dependency over Geopolymer concrete. The findings of the study unleash hefty potential towards utilizing grounded RHA in alkali activated 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.
