***EACH PAPER IS TREATED LIKE A SEPARATE DOCUMENT AND MAY BE VIEWED AND/OR DOWNLOADED THAT WAY*** A workshop on the fire performance of high-strength concrete (HSC) was sponsored by the Building and Fire Research Laboratory (BFRL), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), on February 13-14, 1997 at NIST facilities in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The organizing committee included Dr. George C. Hoff of Mobil Technology Company, Mr. Michael P.Gillen of Dupont Engineering, Dr. S.K. Ghosh of the Portland Cement Association, and Drs. Nicholas J. Carino, H.S. Lew, and Long T. Phan of NIST. The objective of the workshop was to identify research areas to address issues concerning the fire performance of HSC: namely, (1) the high rate of compressive strength loss of HSC when exposed to high temperature; (2) the high susceptibility of HSC to explosive spalling; and (3) the current inadequacy of code provisions for design of HSC structures exposed to fire. The workshop participants included leading researchers, representatives of trade organizations, government regulators from nine different countries, including Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Taiwan, United Kingdom, and the United States of America.
