Scope of Study

Rekayasa Sipil is a forum for researchers, students, and professionals who want to publish their writing or research. This journal is focused on scientific development in civil engineering subjects, including structural mechanics, construction management, water resources, geotechnical, and transportation engineering.

Innovation in material science and engineering

This scope includes modeling, research, and application of concrete (i.e., self-compacting concrete (SCC), self-healing concrete (SHC), high-strength concrete (SHC), and so on), steel (hot-rolled and cold-formed), polymers, fibers, and asphalt technology. It also accommodates environmentally friendly building materials such as slag, fly ash, Recycled Concrete Aggregate (RCA), etc.

Structural and earthquake engineering

This scope concerns the structural design, analysis, modeling, research, and application of buildings, bridges, towers, tunnels, and other structures under static, cyclic, or dynamic load. Earthquake engineering is used to understand the interaction between the structural elements and the earthquake load. Structural design includes strength, stability, safety, and comfortability, while analysis, modeling, and research concern structural behavior and performance, including strength, deformation, stiffness, rotation, ductility, etc.

Geotechnical Engineering

This scope covers rock and soil to support the upper structure properly. This scope also includes foundations, retaining walls, and other structures. The study also covers groundwater, landslide prevention, landfills, etc. The investigated parameters include strength, stiffness, dilatancy, etc.

Environmental Engineering

This scope studies sanitary engineering, hazardous waste and pollution management, environmental remediation, green engineering, industrial ecology, water purification, wastewater treatment, and many more.

Transportation Engineering

This scope deals with moving people and goods from the origin to the destination. This scope involves the design, construction, and maintenance of transportation infrastructure (streets, canals, highways, railways, airports, ports, mass transits, and so on). The study also includes traffic engineering, queueing theory, urban engineering, pavement, Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS), infrastructure management, and many more.

Construction Management

This scope includes estimating, reviewing, and applying the project’s schedule, cost, quality, safety, scope, and function management.

Forensic Engineering

This scope deals with the investigation of the structural condition using some structural testing (destructive and non-destructive tests (NDT)) to understand the cause and location of structural failure or why it does not operate or function as intended. This scope also helps society solve structural problems or improve structural performance.
