About This Special Issue
Using Basalt fibers as an alternative to carbon fibers that pollute the environment is a good research direction to control the pollution of the environment and save human health, that is because Basalt fibers generated from basalt rocks are an environmentally friendly material that doesn’t produce any toxic reactions with air or water, and its surface is anti-explosion. Also, it doesn’t produce chemical reactions that may damage the environment or human health when it contacts other chemicals, it is safe for use in industry and has no pollution, so it is safe for use in industry and has no pollution, and it also saves natural resources which can be recycled and reused in buildings. authors in this special issue are trying to solve the problem of environmental pollution or at least reduce it by using new materials that do not harm human health and do not negatively affect the environment such as basalt fibers. The behavior of these materials and their impact on the behavior of various structures in the field of civil engineering, especially the field of construction, will be studied through different topics such as strengthening existing structures, reinforcing structures with BFRP bars, enhancing concrete compressive strength using basalt fibers and make a comparison with carbon fiber behavior in those different topics.
The primary goal of this special issue is to study the possibility of replacing CFRP with BFRP to save human health from pollution resulting from the carbon fiber industry. We invite contributions that explore environmental solutions by replacing materials polluting the environment with other that doesn’t pollute the environment, with a particular interest in BFRP and its influence on different structures.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • strengthening different structures with BFRP such as beams, deep beams, slabs, and columns
  • reinforcing structures with BFRP bars
  • basalt fiber as a ratio of concrete mix and its behavior in beams, deep beams, slabs, and columns
  • comparison between the behavior of structures with basalt fibers and other structure with carbon fibers
  • Types of articles welcomed: Original research articles, review articles, case studies, etc.
    Through this special issue, we aim to get full information about using BFRP in civil engineering structures to use it instead of other fibers polluting the environment, especially carbon fibers. We welcome researchers from various disciplines to provide interdisciplinary perspectives on BFRP. Your contributions will play a crucial role in advancing knowledge in this field.
