FIBER REINFORCED CONCRETE FOR ENHANCING STRUCTURAL FIRE RESISTANCE OF COLUMNS

This paper deals with the application of fiber reinforced concrete to enhance structural fire resistance. Materials, such as fiber reinforced concrete, have good fire resistance properties and, by properly designing the building elements, fire resistance, in the practical range, can be obtained. The properties of steel fiber reinforced concrete are discussed. Examples of some fire resistance applications of steel fiber reinforced concrete in buildings are illustrated. Results from studies on the fire resistance of concrete-filled steel columns show that the addition of steel fibers in concrete filling improves the fire resistance of steel columns and eliminates the need for external fire protection. The application of fiber reinforced concrete in enhancing the fire resistance of high strength concrete column is also discussed.
