Experimental study of the influence of polypropylene fibres on material propertiesand fire spalling of concrete

A study of the fire spalling behaviour of concrete has been performed. It has been shown thatpolypropylene fibres (PP-fibres) reduce fire spalling of the investigated concretes. From thematerial testing part of this project it was revealed that PP-fibres in concrete modify the dryingbehaviour and the capillary saturation close to the surface of the concrete, and introduce aplateau in the free thermal strain curve.
