Our project investigated fire-induced spalling and the associated losses of cross-section caused by increased pore pressures at elevated temperatures. This was modeled conceptually to explore the impacts of construction and design practices and to analytically evaluate the impacts of cross-sectional losses. The model was tested with normal and high strength concrete column designs consistent with provisions of ACI 318; the fire conditions were based on ASTM E-119. Similar data sets could be considered to further our understanding of fire-induced spalling.
