Welcome to International Journal of Concrete Structures and Materials (IJCSM)

The International Journal of Concrete Structures and Materials (IJCSM) provides an international forum about various topics related to concrete or cement based materials and structures. This forum provides an opportunity for international engineers and scientists to contribute their knowledge for the advancement and safety of human society. IJCSM is currently published under the auspice of the Korea Concrete Institute (KCI). In addition, international scholars from over 17 countries have contributed as editorial members for IJCSM, helping the world's top scholars to publish their best research papers.

Featured Article: Experimental Investigation on Flexural Behavior of Reinforced Ultra High Performance Concrete Low-Profile T-Beams

Experimental Investigation on Flexural Behavior of Reinforced Ultra High Performance Concrete Low-Profile T-BeamsThe flexural behavioral properties of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) low-profile T-beams reinforced with a combination of steel fibers and steel reinforcing bars were investigated in this paper. Five large scale T-beams were tested and analyzed regarding their deflection, ductility, strain, curvature, load capacity and crack development. The experimental variables include the reinforcement ratio, the slenderness (length to diameter ratio) of the fiber reinforcements, and the fiber type.

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: Author self-paying APC

The authors will pay the full charge of APC of their manuscript (EUR 1390 per paper). Self-paying authors will do so through Editorial Manager.

Option 2: 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 3: 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.

Aims and scope

The International Journal of Concrete Structures and Materials (IJCSM) provides an international forum for international civil engineers and material scientists to present and discuss various topics related to concrete, cement-based composites, polymer concrete, fiber-reinforced concrete, and concrete structures. Topics include, but are not limited to, research results on

  • Concrete materials and structures
  • Advanced experimental techniques for concrete or cement-based composites
  • Advanced modelling technologies about concrete materials and structures
  • Microstructural characterization of concrete or cement-based composites
  • Advanced concrete structural system
  • Fiber reinforced concrete technology
  • Concrete waste management

IJCSM also publishes Review articles 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 members for IJCSM, helping the world's top scholars to publish their best research papers.
