Studying the behavior of concrete under fire is crucial for understanding the performance and safety of concrete structures in fire conditions. Concrete is widely used in the construction industry, due to its strength, durability and fire resistance properties. However, even though concrete is inherently fire-resistant, it can still be affected by high temperatures. When concrete is exposed to fire, several physical and chemical processes take place that can lead to its deterioration and eventual failure. Fire Behaviour and the Residual Mechanical Properties of Structural Concrete helps readers understand these processes, enabling engineers and researchers to develop effective fire protection measures and design guidelines for concrete structures.
