The purpose of this project is to evaluate the performance of concrete at high temperature exposures and the performance assessment of fire-damaged concrete structures using destructive, semi-destructive and non-destructive test methods. The testing performed was conducted on samples of mortar cubes, reinforced concrete slabs, and concrete cylinders; these specimens were used as representative samples of concrete structures. The test methods used in evaluating these temperature-exposed specimens include the compression test, ultrasonic pulse velocity, covermeter, pullout and Schmidt hammer.
