Abstract

The decrease in concrete resistance and the expansion generated in reinforced concrete structures by direct exposure to fire at 400 degrees C maximum temperature serves as the basis for the present research. The aim is to improve these problems by the addition of steel fibers or of polypropylene fibers in concrete. From the results analysis of compression fracture tests on cylindrical concrete specimens, it can be concluded that concrete with addition of polypropylene fibers or steel fibers are a good alternative to traditional concrete, because both its strength, and its behavior in case of fire are improved, delaying the appearance of fissures and explosive concrete spalling.
