Featured Article: Investigation of Thermal Behaviour of a Hybrid Precasted Concrete Floor using Embedded Sensors

11.29.18 Image ResizeConcrete structures expand and contract in response to temperature changes which can result in structural strain and cracking. However, there is a limited amount of robust field data on hybrid concrete floor structures. Shortage of such data impacts on our understanding of how concrete structures respond to thermal effects and ultimately the overall design of concrete structures. Thus, a comprehensive structural and environmental monitoring strategy was implemented by the authors during the construction of an educational building.

Article Processing Charge (APC) Paying Options

The following are the APC payment options that authors can take upon the submission to IJCSM. The option has to be selected at the time of a manuscript submission and follow up actions to the selection will be take place if the review decision of the submission is decided as “Accepted for publication”. 

Option 1: Korean Concrete Institute (KCI) fee coverage request

There is full sponsorship available through KCI for authors without available funding for APCs. To request sponsorship, please contact journal@mail.kci.or.kr. Please note that this not the same as requesting a waiver (see Option 2).

Option 2: SpringerOpen fee waiver request

Authors from low income countries or from SpringerOpen Membership institutions will be able to separately request waivers or discounts in Editorial Manager.

Option 3: Author self-paying APC

The authors will pay the full charge of APC of their manuscript (EUR 1155 per paper). Self-paying authors will do so through Editorial Manager.

Aims and scope

The International Journal of Concrete Structures and Materials (IJCSM) provides a forum targeted for engineers and scientists around the globe to present and discuss various topics related to concrete, concrete structures and other applied materials incorporating cement cementitious binder, and polymer or fiber in conjunction with concrete. These forums give participants an opportunity to contribute their knowledge for the advancement of society. Topics include, but are not limited to, research results on

  • Properties and performance of concrete and concrete structures
  • Advanced and improved experimental techniques
  • Latest modelling methods
  • Possible improvement and enhancement of concrete properties
  • Structural and microstructural characterization
  • Concrete applications
  • Fiber reinforced concrete technology
  • Concrete waste management

IJCSM also publishes review articles, as well as short communications and discussions.

IJCSM is currently published under the auspice of the Korea Concrete Institute. In addition, scholars from over 17 countries have contributed as editorial staff and judges for IJCSM, helping the world's top scholars to publish their best research papers.

Benefit from our free funding service

We offer a free open access support service to make it easier for you to discover and apply for article-processing charge (APC) funding.
