6th International Workshop on Concrete Spalling due to Fire Exposure

Share with :

Controlling the sensitivity of concrete to spalling during fire exposure is one of the major issues in the design and construction of concrete structures and infrastructure today. The Fire Spalling Workshop 2019 will be held in Sheffield, UK. The Workshop will focus on real-world experiences and observations, practical applications, experimental and numerical advances, as well as structural design.

The 6th International Workshop on Concrete Spalling due to Fire Exposure concentrates on real-world experiences and observations, practical applications, experimental and numerical advances, as well as structural design. The aim of the workshop is to obtain an overview of the current level of knowledge and to stimulate discussion between researchers and representatives from industry, authorities and code-making bodies in order to promote further understanding.

Workshop topics 

  • Influence of chemical, physical and mechanical processes on spalling of concrete
  • Thermal behaviour and thermal stability of concrete ingredients at high temperatures
  • Influence of heating on concrete properties
  • Pore pressure development
  • Transport mechanisms in heated concrete
  • Stress-strain behaviour and fracture mechanics of heated concrete
  • Spalling mechanisms
  • Model selection and multiscale modelling
  • Testing requirements and interpretation
  • Constitutive material laws
  • Structural design models taking into account spalling
  • Influence of spalling on fire resistance and residual capacity
  • Occurrence of spalling in natural fires
  • Damage assessment and repair of heated concrete
  • Measures to reduce or prevent spalling
  • Case studies
  • Pre-normative research and standardization
