A comprehensive database on fire performance of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) strengthened reinforced concrete (RC) beams is presented. The database comprises of varying geometric dimensions, FRP-strengthening levels, steel reinforcement ratio, insulation thickness and configuration, material properties as well as the applied load levels. Input files for thermal and structural analysis of beams TB1 and TB2 (described in paper) are provided here in this version along with the detailed dataset.


Steps to reproduce

Numerical model developed and validated by Kodur and Bhatt was applied to conduct fire resistance analysis on a series of FRP-strengthened RC beams with different geometrical dimensions, insulation configuration, applied loading, and fire duration.
