Title: Effects of Fire on Concrete
Author(s): Narendra Gosain
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 67-71
Keywords: damage assessment; delamination; fire; repair; spalling; testing
Abstract:Even though a fire generally doesn’t cause significant damage in concrete structures, all structures must be evaluated after a fire. Under most circumstances, even obvious damage caused to concrete by fire is repairable. With proper evaluation and testing techniques, both in the field and laboratory, the actual extent of damage can be determined, and a proper, cost-effective repair technique can be developed. Two brief case studies illustrate how these techniques can be implemented following actual fire events.
