Fire Protection of High-Performance Concrete Using Protective Lining
The paper presents results of experimental and numerical analyses on the fire behavior of concrete elements protected by sprayed protective linings. Particular attention is given to high- (HPC) and ultrahigh performance concrete (UHPC), as HPC and UHPC tend to exhibit explosive spalling in fire due to low porosity. The results provide basic input data for the development of simplified rules for the fire design of concrete structures protected by sprayed protective linings.
