AbstractAn alternative to the use of insulation for limiting temperatures in a steel structure exposed to fire is to increase its thermal capacity. Where there are steel columns with hollow profiles, this can be realized by filling the profiles with concrete, which, when joined to its relatively high mass and its moisture content, increases the thermal capacity of the structure. Civil engineer Andres Aulik in the Steel Construction Department of the Royal Technological Institute, has studied the temperature variations of uninsulated concrete steel columns, with the aid of theoretical data calculation, for various imagined cases of fire stress.
