Although concrete in general is a non-combustible material, the fire resistance of concrete structures depends, to a large extent, on the mechanical material behaviour. Fire tests have shown that SCC is often susceptible to explosive spalling due to fire exposure, in a similar manner to HPC. But there are hardly any studies available that report properties of specimens at high temperatures. Therefore, the authors have studied the mechanical behaviour of SCC to provide thermo mechanical characteristics for structural fire design. The analysed SCC reveals a significant differing thermal induced strength evolution in comparison to ordinary concrete.
