SP92 This publication is a compilation of 11 papers dealing exclusively with the analysis and repairability of concrete damaged in building fires. Due to the importance of concrete and its role in the structural performance of modern buildings, the ability to deal with fire-damaged concrete is a central issue. This symposium volume combines the knowledge and experience of fire safety experts from around the world. The topics covered include the following: experience of fires in concrete structures; fires during nuclear power plant construction; assessment and repair of fire-damaged concrete; residual properties of concrete heated rapidly; and residual strength of fire-exposed reinforced concrete columns. Evaluation and Repair of Fire Damage to Concrete will give the reader substantial insight into both the problems and solutions associated with concrete which has been exposed to high temperatures.
