Abstract

Several studies suggest that, cause of the lower temperature conductivity leading to a lower reinforcement heat, LWC has better fire resistance than (NDC) which refers to the normal density concrete besides, (HC-fire)indicates to the hydrocarbon fire experience is based on high-strength LWC tests with comparatively low water/binder ratios compared to high-strength LWC as compared to NDC during fire tests. A plethora of studiesrefers that LWC has better fire resistance than (NDC) means as normal density concrete because of the lower temperature conductivity that contributes to a lower reinforcement heat. The majority of hydrocarbon fire (HC-fire) encounters concentrate on high-strength LWC tests with comparatively low water / binding ratios as opposed to high-strength LWC tests during fire tests.
