Concrete are the most important materials used in construction industries where the external forces more
than the design loads mainly the lateral forces which leads to the deformation and produce cracks in the joints of the
structural member. The usage of cement has been increased more over the world results in the air pollution which leads
to the ozone depletion .To overcome these type of problem like crack formation and usage of cement content used for
repair works can be reduced by using the self healing bacterial concrete. These are materials which heals the crack
automatically when the cracks are formed. These self healing is achieved by means of using the Biological healing
aspect by using the bacterial concrete. Bacteria are used during the mixing of concrete will cure the cracks the
automatically by means of it screeds known as calcium carbonate precipitate. In these study horizontal forces are applied
to the three storey single bay framed structure by means of using the hydraulic jack in which the cracks are formed in the
framed structure mainly the cracks are formed in the Beam-Column Joints. The Cracks leads to the penetration of
oxygen inside the reinforcement area will forms the Corrosion. To avoid the formation of corrosion the cracks bacterial
concrete along with 60% of fly ash are used which results in self healing process. These self healing which cure and
arrest the cracks in the structure which gives the environment free pollution and sustainable structure.

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
