Abstract: The thermal and mechanical properties of 4 different types of concrete were studied in the temperature range of 20°C to 800°C. Thermal properties studied include: thermal conductivity, specific heat and thermal expansion. Data generated from the testing of these samples using the Hot Disk TPS method were used in order to generate simplified expressions of thermal and mechanical properties as a function of time.
