Structural engineering is usually considered as a specialty discipline within civil engineering, but can also be studied in its own right. It is the science and art of designing and making buildings, bridges, frameworks and other similar structures. It has taken a completely different path since the middle of the 20th century. It involves understanding the load-resisting properties of components such as beams, columns, walls, slabs, plates, arches, shells, catenaries, etc., and selecting, proportioning, and connecting different components of a structure to resist the forces and displacements without affecting the safety of the structure. Structural Engineers are responsible for using funds, structural elements and materials creatively and efficiently. In recognition of the growing importance of this branch of engineering, IUP has come up with a quarterly journal, The IUP Journal of Structural Engineering.

A Study on Response of Industrial Structure Under Dynamic Loads
Swati B Bekkeri and Varsha Gokak

Industrial structures include the infrastructure of power, petrochemical, agriculture and manufacturing sectors. Industrial structures can be recognized through their form and function, but it is not the case with general buildings. This is because, the function of industrial structures is to encounter extreme variations of loads that are likely to occur during the manufacturing and finishing process of any industry. In the present work, an analysis is done of an existing industrial building which is supposed to withstand various static and dynamic loads. To achieve this, various strengthening methods are used such as strengthening of existing columns, introduction of additional beams, knee bracings and braces. The response of the structure is observed when different strengthening methods are adopted. The main objective is to decide the efficient strengthening technique that resists the applied loads efficiently and to ensure that the amplitude of vibrations is within the limit as specified by the vendors or as per IS: 108162 (2001). The analysis is done using STAAD Pro v8i. The results showed that when secondary beams are provided, the building resists the transmitted loads effectively and vibrations produced by the machines are also within the allowable limits. This method is also very economical compared to other methods (Bhatia, 2011).

An Experimental Study on Notched Beam
Jyoti I Maled and Kiran M Malipatil

The design of civil engineering structural elements such as beams, columns, footing, slab, pavement, etc. is based on certain design factors. Though we design the structure with maximum safety factor, the structure eventually will get damaged due to various combinations of loads. Proper attempt has been made in this study to analyze the beam element and to find out its strength. In this study, beam of size 700 X 150 X 150 has been casted using proper mix design. Three different types of beams are casted such as beam with a notch, normal beam, and one more normal beam to which notch will be generated after curing period (28 days). After the completion of curing period, the beams are subjected to two points loading and the load deflection data has been noted. It is very important to note down the first crack load data. And crack pattern has been observed.

An Experimental Investigation on Concrete Using Different Types of Fine Aggregates
G Srinivasan, J Saravanan and G Rajasri

Concrete is a major material used in construction. It consists of cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate and water. Usually, the usage of river sand in our country is very large in the construction industry. Due to its vast use, the demand for fine aggregate is increasing day by day. Hence, it is time to find a suitable alternate to meet the demand. The paper uses two different alternatives available abundantly, Manufacturing sand (M-sand) and seashore sand, as full replacement for regular river sand. The seashore sand was tested for pH, EC, chloride, salt content, etc. M25concrete grade was used. Cube, cylinder and prism specimens were casted and tested for compressive strength, modulus of elasticity for concrete and flexural strength. In addition to this, durability test was also conducted. The results are tabulated and compared with the conventional concrete.

An Optimum Mix Proportioning of Eco-Friendly Concrete Using Taguchi’s Approach
Syed Mueen, Mohd Umar and A K Kaliluthin

The purpose of the study is to optimize the mix design of an eco-friendly concrete using Taguchi’s approach. The experiment was designed using the Orthogonal Array technique. A total of 36 cubes of size 100 X 100 X 100 mm were cast in order to determine their physical and mechanical properties. Optimum mix was selected, followed by confirmation trial. The results showed that the compressive strength of the concrete decreased as the percentage of the coconut shells increased.

The Influence of Steel Fiber on the Mechanical Properties of Concrete: An Experimental and Analytical Study
Ilango Sivakumar and Sivagamasundari R

In the present situation, construction industries are in thirst of introducing cost-effective materials to the world in order to increase the strength of concrete structures. Conventional concrete possesses very low tensile strength, limited ductility and little resistance to cracking. These drawbacks can be set right by the inclusion of steel or polymeric fibers. Hence, a study has been made on the mechanical properties such as compressive strength, flexural strength and E for concrete of M40 and M50 grade mixed with various percentages of steel fibers (hooked end and crimped steel fiber) of 0.5% and 1% by volume of concrete. It is observed that for the same volume fraction, concrete reinforced with the hooked end fiber showed improvement in all properties as compared to that of crimped steel fiber. It is observed that compressive strength, flexural strength and elastic modulus are on the higher side for 1% fibers as compared to that produced from 0% and 0.5% fibers. Also, Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model has been developed using the experimental data to predict the properties of various parametric Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete (SFRC) specimens.
