Title: Strategies for Enhancing Fire Resistance of High-Strength Concrete Structures

Author(s): Venkatesh Kumar R. Kodur

Publication: Concrete International

Volume: 42

Issue: 5

Appears on pages(s): 26-32

When exposed to fire, high-strength concretes experience faster degradation of strength and stiffness than normal-strength concretes, and they are more susceptible to fire-induced spalling. Experimental and numerical fire resistance studies on structural members comprised of normal- and high-strength concrete are described, fire performance factors are listed, and recommendations on enhancing fire performance of high-strength concrete members are provided.
