AbstractExperimental studies were carried out to determine the fire resistance performance of high-strength concrete columns. The results of fire endurance experiments on ten full-scale columns are described in this report. The test variables included concrete strength type of aggregate in concrete, silica fume, tie configuration and spacing, load intensity and eccentricity of loading. These studies were conducted as part of a collaborative research program, aimed at studying fire endurance of high-strength concrete columns.
