SubjectConcrete columns
AbstractThis paper presents the results of full-scale fire tests on two concrete columns strengthened with fibre reinforced polymer sheets and protected with a new insulation system. One column was circular while the other was square. The columns were subjected to the ULC-S101 standard fire. Both columns obtained fire endurance ratings of over 4 hours. At the end of the fire test, the columns were loaded to failure. The temperatures in the columns during the fire test and the load capacities of the columns will be presented. Additional work is required to compare the results against thermal and structural numerical models developed specifically for circular and square columns.
