Performance in Fire of Fibre Reinforced Polymer Strengthened Concrete Beams and Columns: Recent Research and Implications for Design

Performance in Fire of Fibre Reinforced Polymer Strengthened Concrete Beams and Columns: Recent... This paper considers the fire performance of concrete beams and columns that have been strengthened with fibre reinforced polymers (FRPs). Results from four recent full-scale tests are presented. A newly developed type of insulation was employed and the thickness of the insulation (15 to 20 mm) was approximately half that provided in earlier tests. All of the members survived four hours of the fire exposure. A conceptual model for design to determine when insulation is required is also presented. Further research needed to fully develop the conceptual model to a more practical design tool is outlined. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Structural Fire Engineering Emerald Publishing

Abstract

This paper considers the fire performance of concrete beams and columns that have been strengthened with fibre reinforced polymers (FRPs). Results from four recent full-scale tests are presented. A newly developed type of insulation was employed and the thickness of the insulation (15 to 20 mm) was approximately half that provided in earlier tests. All of the members survived four hours of the fire exposure. A conceptual model for design to determine when insulation is required is also presented. Further research needed to fully develop the conceptual model to a more practical design tool is outlined.
