This paper presents results of a study which investigates spalling in small scale specimens of fibre-reinforced high strength concrete exposed to elevated temperatures. A relationship to predict relative maximum pressures was developed, which takes into account parameters such as concrete strength, fibre type and fibre geometry. Also, a blowtorch spalling test method was utilized to investigate spalling in small scale specimens, and a clear relationship between relative maximum pore pressures and spalling was observed.
