Abstract:
This paper outlines the procedures adopted in obtaining information on fire-damaged concrete structures since 1975. Details are given on the information received from questionnaires and a summary of the building and construction types, damage and repairs are tabulated. The general conclusion is that concrete structures behave well under fire conditions with the majority of cases being repairable.
