AbstractThe fire resistance of square, reinforced concrete columns has been studied under both standard fire test conditions and under conditions that more closely resemble those encountered in practice, including column-structure interaction effects and realistic fire conditions. Based on calculated results, simple design rules are given for the fire resistance as a function of type of aggregate, column size, cover thickness to steel, amount of steel, design safety factor and equivalent buckling strength.
