Basic Information

The IBRACON Structures and Materials Journal (in Portuguese: Revista IBRACON de Estruturas e Materiais) is a technical and scientific divulgation vehicle of IBRACON (Brazilian Concrete Institute), published every two months. Each issue has 5 to 8 articles and, possibly, a technical note and/or a technical discussion regarding a previously published paper. All contributions are reviewed and approved by professionals with recognized scientific competence in the area.

The IBRACON Structures and Materials Journal was created in 2008 as a result of the combination of the previous IBRACON Structural Journal and IBRACON Materials Journal.


  • Present current developments and advances in the area of concrete structures and materials;
  • Make possible the better understanding of structural concrete behavior, supplying subsidies for a continuous interaction among researchers, producers and users;

  • Promote the interaction among researchers, constructors and users of concrete structures and materials and the development of Civil Construction;
  • Provide a vehicle of communication of high technical level for researchers and designers in the areas of concrete structures and materials.

Its abbreviated title is Rev. IBRACON Estrut. Mater., which should be used in bibliographies, footnotes and bibliographical references and strips.
