AbstractThree full-scale fire resistance tests were conducted at the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) in partnership with ISIS Canada and Fyfe Co. LLC, to investigate the behaviour of fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) wrapped (confined) reinforced concrete columns under exposure to the standard fire. Both columns were provided with a unique supplemental fire protection system. The results of fire endurance experiments on the three full-scale columns are described in this report. These tests were conducted as part of a collaborative research program, aimed at studying fire endurance of FRP-wrapped reinforced concrete columns. The test results suggest that, by providing proper fire insulation as described in this report, a 4-hour fire endurance rating can be achieved for loaded reinforced concrete columns strengthened with FRPwraps.
