Paper Title:
Effect of Elevated Temperature on the Mechanical Behavior of Natural Aggregate Concrete
  Abstract

Reinforced concrete construction is very common these days and extensively used both in industrial and commercial buildings. With the gradual rise in occurrences of fire accidents in recent years, a more thorough and quantitative understanding of the damage phenomenon in natural aggregate concrete structures is required. However, little research has been done to study natural aggregate concrete behavior under high temperatures. The mechanical behavior of concrete could actually be more complex under high temperature conditions than at room temperature, for instance. Restoration and reinforcement of the structures exposed to fire may have to be based on residual strength analysis and therefore require a correlation between temperature and mechanical properties. Thus, in order to meet the modern challenges of rapid engineering advances and societal development, further research on the concrete material and its structural behavior at high temperatures becomes extremely important. The present paper deals with investigations on the effect of high temperature exposure on the compressive strength of natural aggregate concrete. Experiments were conducted to study the compressive strength variations with increasing temperatures, up to 700 °C, and the subsequent cooling modes such as natural and spray cooling. Results show that the compressive strength gradually decreases with increasing temperatures.
