Influence of polypropylene fibres on fire spalling and material properties of concrete

A study of the fire spalling behaviour of concrete has been performed. It has been shown that polypropylene fibres (PP-fibres) reduce fire spalling of the investigated concretes. From the material testing part of this project it was revealed that PP-fibres in concrete modify the drying behaviour and the capillary saturation close to the surface of the concrete, and introduce a plateau in the free thermal strain curve (A).
