fire concrete restraints resistance
Project description

Structural concrete elements are most often restrained at their supports, at least to a certain level. Thermal expansion of these influence the structural resistance. Only limited research is available on the influence of restraint conditions on the fire resistance of concrete structures, although they may have a significant influence.
