This paper provides the consequences from an experimental research at the behaviour of Reactive Powder Concretes (RPC) at hot temperature. The publicity to extreme temperature is expounded to the aptitude danger of fireside. a prior research has proven that RPC is vulnerable to spalling in such conditions and as a result polypropylene fibres have been utilized in RPC concrete to avoid this taking place. The addition of PP fibres reduces the chance of spalling because of a rise in permeability, but it reduces the preliminary compressive energy of the RPC fabric by way of approx. 20 percent. the consequences reveal that the energy of concrete in addition to the modulus of elasticity reduce with expanding temperature. experimental concretes have been ready and prismatic specimens, 40x40x80mm in measurement, have been forged from each one blend and established in compression after being submitted to the extreme temperature. The relative price of compressive power direction for either different types of concrete indicates the same improvement. The swap in modulus of elasticity with temperature was firm from the stress-strain dating and in comparison with the dynamic modulus of elasticity decided with using a Pundit plus ultrasonic pulse pace defectoscope.
