Structural Concrete, the official journal of the fib, provides conceptual and procedural guidance in the field of concrete construction and features peer-reviewed papers, keynote research and industry news covering all aspects of the design, construction, performance in service, conservation (assessment, maintenance, strengthening) and demolition of concrete structures, research about the behaviour of concrete structures, development of design methods, fib Model Code, sustainability of concrete structures.. 

Indexed in the Thomson Reuters (ISI) Web of Science since Volume 10 (2009), the journal now has an impact factor of 1.885 and is published six times a year.
