Publisher Summary. This chapter examines the strength of concrete at elevated temperatures. A device for testing the mechanical behavior of concrete at elevated temperatures must include three systems: a system for heating and temperature control, a system to support and load the specimen, and a system of measuring and recording instruments.
A constitutive model of concrete subjected to elevated temperature is suggested in this study. The model is composed of four strain components: free thermal strain, mechanical strain, thermal creep strain, and transient strain due to moisture.
The thermal creep strain of concrete is derived from the modified power-law transient behaviour of plain concrete at elevated temperatures. book for steady state by: 8. Temperature Distribution in Concrete Slabs Exposed To Elevated Temperature Mr.

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. Castillo and Durrani  observed a loss of about % in strength at temperatures of o C, and the residual strength of the concrete was below the initial strength at elevated.
The paper describes experimental work carried out at Imperial College by the second author under the supervision of the first. The aim was to select a concrete mix which could perform as well at high temperatures as at ambient temperature. The testing was carried out on cement matrix and also on cementitious materials with different percentage replacements of the cement.
The study on the effect of elevated temperature on Geo-polymer concrete (GPC) got its significance because conventional concrete start to deteriorate around ⁰ C.
GPC gains attention as it is. e behaviour of a concrete structural member exposed to re is dependent, in part, on thermal, mechanical, and (as plain and ber-reinforced concrete), and performance (as conventional and high performance satisfactory explanation for the creep of concrete at elevated temperatures.
Transient strain occurs during the rst time heating of. The mechanical behaviour of normal weight concrete subjected to high temperature and biaxial stress is not well understood. The investigation reported is twofold. These equations for creep and transient strain at elevated temperatures as suggested by Anderberg and Thelandersson are where = creep strain, = transient strain, = × 10 −6 s −, = × 10 −3 K −1, = concrete temperature (°K) at time (s), = concrete strength at temperature, = stress in the concrete at the current.

A constitutive model for the analysis of deformations of concrete subject to transient temperature and pressures is proposed. In these severe conditions concrete structures experience spalling phenomenon, which is the violent or non-violent breaking off of layers or pieces of concrete from the surface of a structural element when it is exposed to high and rapidly rising temperatures.
Indeed, a considerable amount of literature exists with regard to the behaviour of plain concrete as well as reinforcement at elevated temperatures . Also, a significant number of structural tests are known in which for instance slabs have been brought to failure by exposing them to extreme thermal conditions, e.g.

A review of mechanical properties of concrete at elevated temperature is given by Phan and Carino . Effects of elevated temperatures include decreasing concrete strength, f'c, [2. Reinforcement at Elevated Temperature Abstract This paper describes an experimental investigation into the influence of elevated temperatures on the mechanical properties of steel reinforcement.
The study includes tests carried out under ambient temperature as well as steady-state and transient elevated temperature conditions.
In this paper, the bond behaviour of reinforced concrete exposed to high temperature at early age has been investigated. The influence of temperature, curing age before exposing to high temperature and repair agent on the ultimate bond stress and bond displacement of reinforced concrete are analysed.
investigated the influence of temperature, water content, specimen size, strength grade and temperature profiles on the mechanical properties of normal-strength concrete (NSC) and high-strength concrete (HSC) after high temperature. The compressive strength of concrete after it was heated to °C was tested in three levels of water content.
1Abstract—the stress-strain curve of High Strength Concrete (HSC) depends on temperature conditions. Elevated temperatures affect the strength, ductility, elastic modulus and brittleness of concrete.
A study will be conducted to investigate the effect of elevated temperatures on the stress-strain curves of HSC. The stress-strain curve tests will be conducted at temperatures of 25°C, °C. This paper examines the mechanical behaviour of concrete following exposure to elevated temperature up to °C through experimental investigation, with emphasis on the effect of microstructure evolution on the deterioration of concrete compressive strength.

A thermo‐mechanical model for concrete under transient high temperatures is presented. Particular emphasis is placed on the transient thermal creep model, which can be seen as an extension of Thelandersson's formulation, and the gradient‐enhanced damage model that has been extended here to include temperature dependency.
temperature distributions in concrete pavements as a function of changes in thermal environmental conditions. The model attempts to predict the rate and depth of temperature changes during freeze and thaw cycles.
The proposed model however does not model surface cooling effects due to precipitation. This paper aims to inspect the effect of indirect elevated temperature on the mechanical performance of nano silica concrete (NSC). The effect on both compressive and bond strengths is studied.
Pre- and post-exposure to elevated temperature ranges of to °C is examined. A range covered by three percentages of3 and per cent nano silica (NS) in concrete mixes is tested.,Pre. Tensile characteristic of concrete at elevated temperature is specified as traditional tensile stress-strain relationship that exists in the concrete damaged plasticity model as described in ABAQUS.
For modeling damaged plasticity in concrete, the relevant values proposed by Jankowiak [ 18 ] are adopted and presented in Table 1. A: The behavior of concrete at high temperatures is influenced by several factors, including the rate of temperature rise and the aggregate type and stability.
Abrupt temperature changes can cause cracking and spalling due to thermal shock, and aggregate expansion can also produce distress within the concrete. Concrete is the most utilized material in the construction industry.
Concrete is said to be good in compression but has low tensile strength, and that is why it is usually reinforced with steel .Lau and Anson  studied the effect of high temperature on high-performance steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) with heating temperatures ranging between °C and °C.
The study explores the effect of elevated temperatures on the bond strength between prestressing reinforcement and ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC). Laboratory investigations reveal that the changes in bond strength correspond well with the changes in compressive strength of UHPC and their correlation can be mathematically described.
Exposition of specimens to temperatures up to. Performance of BRBs under static and seismic loadings at ambient temperature  has been well studied, while the behavior of these systems at high temperatures has not yet been investigated to the best of authors' knowledge.
Hence there is a dire need to investigate the thermal behavior of such braces at elevated temperatures.The exposure of concrete to elevated temperatures has a direct effect on its compressive, tensile and flexural strength [2, 3]. One of the main reasons for loss of strength in concrete at elevated temperature is the formation of cracks between cement paste and aggregate because of thermal incompatibility between the two ingredients .
