Title: Strength, Elasticity and Thermal Properties of Concrete Subjected to Elevated Temperatures
Author(s): T. Harada, J. Takeda, S. Yamane, F. Furumura
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 377-406
Keywords: aggregates; bond (concrete to reinforcement); cement pastes; compressive strength; concretes; conducitivity; curing; high temperature; lightweight aggregates; lightweight aggregate concretes; modulus of elasticity; mortars (material)
Abstract:Reports on a study into the reduction of strength and elasticity of concrete during and after heating at elevated temperatures. The variations in thermal properties of concrete at high temperatures using aggregates of various qualities are also considered. It was found that the various thermal properties of concrete were influenced by the type of aggregate and further affected when with a rise in temperature it was found that the mechanical properties are impaired with temperature rise.
