Performance of Concrete at Sustained High Temperature in Material Applications


Article Preview

The effects of sustained high temperature on concrete properties are discussed in this paper. In this experiment, concrete with 6 types of cement were tested after high temperature exposure. Although, test procedures were the same as past literature, test results showed different tendency. The temperature of 50°C at which compressive strength was minimal were found for concrete with high-early strength and medium-heat portland cement, which concrete with other cements showed no change up to 110°C. Relationship between weight loss and compressive strength differed from past literature.
