Abstract: High strength concrete, which is increasingly being used recently, is weak against fires, resulting in a spalling phenomenon due to a rise in its internal steam pressure by a high temperature. As a method of preventing this spalling phenomenon, a method of using organic fibers is being researched the most, but this method causes strength reduction of concrete and collapse of concrete structures in the end after fires. Hence this paper examined the effects of high strength concrete coated with intumescence fire-resistant materials on the spalling prevention and residual compressive strength of concrete, and investigated the thermal change property of cement hydrate after fires. As a result of experiments, it was confirmed that high strength concrete coated with intumescence fire-resistant materials not only prevented spalling but also maintained residual compressive strength at up to 96%, while concrete mixed with organic fibers prevented spalling but showed no residual compressive strength.
