Title: Fire Resistance of High Strength/Dense Concrete With Particular Reference to the Use of Condensed Silica Fume--A Review
Author(s): P. A. Jahren
Publication: Special Publication

Abstract:Use of silica fume is an accepted technology in the Norwegian concrete environment and high-strength concrete incorporating silica fume is being used increasingly. However, in recent years, conflicting reports regarding the fire resistance of high-strength concrete have been published. This review indicates that eventual fire-safety problems seem to be linked less to the materials used than to physical properties of hardened concrete or conditions under which high strength concrete is used.
