Keywords: concretes; fire resistance; fire tests; high temperature; lightweight concretes; masonry; specific heat: thermal conductivity; thermal diffusivity; thermal properties.
The thermal characteristics of I6 concretes have been studied at elevated temperatures with the aid of thermogravimetry, dilafometry, and "thermal property tests." An analysis of the results is given from the point of view of material behavior under fire exposure.
