AbstractExperimental studies were carried out to determine the thermal properties of fibre-reinforced concrete at elevated temperatures. The effect of steel-fibres on thermal conductivity, thermal expansion, specific heat and mass losss of fibre-reinforced concrete at elevated temperatures was investigated. Test data indicate that the steel-fibre-reinforced concrete, under elevated temperatures, exhibits thermal properties that are slightly different from those of plain concrete. These studies were carried out as part of a research program aimed at developing methods capable of predicting the fire resistance of fibre-reinforced concrete columns.
