The study created known temperature profiles in a series of concrete specimens. Physical features induced in the sample and the temperature range to which they are associated were subsequently examined. Attention was focused on the 300 deg C isotherm. The details of the study are described. It is noted that it is beneficial to be able to predict the location of the 300 C isotherm in relation to the heated concrete surface since this enables the maximum depth of significant fire damage to be estimated. It was found that this may be possible for flint aggregate concrete.
