Guerrieri, Maurice and Fragomeni, Sam (2010) Spalling of normal strength concrete walls in fire. In: Structures in Fire : Proceedings of the 6th International Conference. Kodur, Venkatesh and Franssen, Jean-Marc, eds. DEStech Publications, Lancaster, Pa., pp. 301-311.


A standard fire test was conducted on four slender concrete walls incorporating two different loading conditions. The results show that pore pressure build-up and flexural cracking due to support conditions plays a major rule in the spalling performance of concrete walls exposed to fire.
