Featured Article: Experimental Verification of Modal Identification of a High-rise Building Using Independent Component Analysis

Jan 24Independent component analysis is one of the linear transformation methods based the techniques for separating blind sources from the output signals of the system. Recently, the method has been analytically applied to the identification of mode shapes and modal responses from the output signal of structures. This study aims to experimentally validate the blind source separation using ICA method and propose a novel method for identification of the modal parameters from the decomposed modal responses.

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 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 1390 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.
