Abstract

This paper briefly describes the main results of a recent investigation on the influence of polypropylene fibres and restraint on the susceptibility of concrete to explosive spalling at high temperatures. The results suggest that polypropylene fibres may prevent spalling in both unstrained and restrained structures.
