Cover Story:This paper presents the effect of blast loading on a reinforced concrete building which results in breaking some of its structural elements. Different scaled distances were assumed to find the maximum pressures that resulted in the same damage to the building using non-linear analysis. After removing the failed objects, the deformed shape produced by the existing gravity loads is similar to that predicted by the elementary theories of elasticity which means that all the remaining elements are still in the elastic zone.

Pyrethrin Type Compounds from the Municipal Solid Waste Ghazipur Landfill Inert Soil as Brain and Cancer 5-HT Receptor Binding Agents

Received: 17 June 2023;  Published: 01 September 2023;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2303032


The Inert soil obtained from the Ghazipur Municipal Solid Waste landfill located in East Delhi, India has been used as the starting material for the work described in this paper. This mountain-like monster is often in the news for its bad smell, pollution of the groundwater in the area from its leachates, and the occasional fires in it endangering the lives of the people living nearby. Landfills produce many greenhouse gases (CO2, CH4, CO [...]

Behavior of RC Buildings under Blast Loading: Case Study

Received: 28 April 2023;  Published: 27 July 2023;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2303029


In recent years, civil wars and terror activities have caused blast-loading effects on reinforced concrete buildings, resulting in catastrophic human and material damage. When a building is exposed to a blast load, a very high air pressure affects the building within a very short duration. To decide on the reconstruction or retrofit of a building exposed to blast loading, the behavior of the building under blast loading should be investigated. In this paper a case study of a RC building exposed [...]

Detection of Anomalies in Additively Manufactured Metal Parts Using CNN and LSTM Networks

Received: 10 January 2023;  Published: 26 July 2023;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2303028


The process of metal additive manufacturing (AM) involves creating strong, complex components by using fine metal powders. Extensive use of AM methods is expected in near future for the production of small and medium-sized batches of end-use products and tools. The ability to detect loads and defects would enable AM components to be used in critical applications and improve their value. In this study, the Surface Response to Excitation (SuRE) method was used to investigate wave propagation chara [...]

Development of Environmentally Ecofriendly Composites Based on Polypropylene/Bahia Beige Waste: Effect of Reinforcement Content on Physical, Mechanical, Chemical, and Microstructural Properties

Received: 22 May 2023;  Published: 18 July 2023;  doi: 10.21926/rpm.2303027


This article presents the development and characterization of environmentally friendly composites comprising polypropylene (PP) reinforced with Bahia Beige (BB) marble waste. The composites were prepared using different PP/BB weight ratios and analyzed for their chemical, physical, mechanical, microstructural, and thermal properties. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis revealed the composition of BB, which exhibited a significant concentration of CaO, indicating the presence of calcite [...]
