Thermal Analysis of Concrete from Panels Subjected to Fire Experiments
This paper presents the results of the differential thermal analysis of cement matrix samples taken from concrete panels with nominal dimensions of 2300 × 1300 × 150 mm after one-sided exposure to high temperatures. The panels were subjected to maximum nominal temperature loads of 550, 600, 800 and 1000 °C. Concrete was also taken from a reference panel (without temperature loading) and investigated. Five samples with a nominal thickness of 20 mm were taken for thermal analysis. They were cut from the central part of the panels using a diamond blade saw. The thermal analysis covered the effects of temperature load on the concrete to a depth of approximately 100 mm from the heated surface of the panel.
