    PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE AT ELEVATED TEMPERATURES
    Venkatesh Kodur

    Fire response of concrete structural members is dependent on the thermal, mechanical, and deformation properties of concrete. These properties vary significantly with temperature and also depend on the composition and characteristics of concrete batch mix as well as heating rate and other environmental conditions. In this chapter, the key characteristics of concrete are outlined. The various properties that influence fire resistance performance, together with the role of these properties on fire resistance, are discussed.The variation of thermal, mechanical, deformation, and spalling properties with temperature for different types of concrete are presented.
