Vapor Pressure Modeling for Fire Damage Assessment of HPC
High-performance concrete will undergo severe damage under fire conditions. It is well known that vapor pressure induced by high temperatures plays an important role in the damaging process. This paper presents a method of vapor pressure modeling, called equivalent expansion method, which can be implemented in FEM analysis. The modeling procedure consists of two parts, i.e. vapor pressure determination and vapor pressure modeling incorporated in FEM analysis. In order to make analysis more accurate, steam table is employed instead of ideal gas equation.
