Abstract: This paper presents the results of permeability testing on preheated high-strength concrete treated with different types of fiber. The concrete specimens used had a water-cement ratio of 0.30 (fc ≈ 75 MPa) and dimensions of 50 mm in diameter and 50 mm in length. The fibers used were water soluble polyvinyl alcohol (WS-PVA) fibers (length: 4 mm; volume content:
0.15vol%), Jute fibers(length: 12 mm; volume content: 0.075vol%) and polypropylene (PP) fibers(length: 12 mm; volume content: 0.15vol%). The permeability tests were performed on the specimens at 200 and 500°C, and significant differences in the permeability of the heated concrete were observed. The permeability of PP fiber-mixed concrete after heating to 500°C was about 12 times higher than before heating, that of WS-PVA fiber-mixed concrete was about 4 times higher, and that of Jute fiber-mixed concrete was about 3.5 times higher.
