Abstract:
Discusses the factors affecting concrete at high temperatures. When evaluating the effect of temperature history and temperature on concrete, nearly 20 factors must be taken into account. The lack of consideration of these factors in existing investigations on the subject matter has led to great, confusing variations in data, and even into contradictory results. Therefore, at the present state of knowledge, the utilization of the results available must be done very carefully.
