Effect of Elevated Temperature on the Compressive Strength of Reactive Powder Concrete (RPC) Containing Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)

Ikram Faraoun Ahmed | Tagreed Hassan Ibraheem

Abstract: Fire is the most sever environmental condition affecting on concrete structures, thus investigating for fire safety in structural concrete is important for building construction. The slow heat transfer and strength loss enables concrete to be effective for fire resistance. Concrete structures withstand when exposed to fire according to their thermal properties, rate of heating, characteristic properties of concrete mixes and their composition and on the duration of fire, and concerned as thermal property with other factors such as loss of mass which affected by aggregate type, moisture content, and composition of concrete mix. The present research goal is to study the effect of rising temperature on the compressive strength of the reactive powder concrete samples. Then investigate the behavior of reactive powder concrete when using poly vinyl chloride PVC and exposed to elevated temperature from zero to 600Co.

Keywords: effect of elevated temperature on concrete, polyvinyl in concrete, reactive powder concrete
