These proceedings include the papers presented at the “Sixth International Conference on Concrete under Severe Conditions-Environment and Loading”, CONSEC’10, which took place in Mérida, Yucatán, México, June 7–9, 2010. CONSEC conferences strive to facilitate an active dialogue between researchers and practitioners with the primary objective of maintaining a safe and functional concrete infrastructure. They also provide a forum for dealing with our current environmental concerns and help promote sustainable and environmentally friendly materials, processes, and technologies. Equally important is to bring various disciplines together—which otherwise function in isolation—to accelerate the discovery of multi-disciplinary solutions that are not only elegant and cost-effective but also environmentally conscious and socially responsible. Finally, these conferences provide networking opportunities at the highest international level that help foster long-term partnerships. Premature corrosion of reinforcing steel, inadequate structural design for seismic or blast loading, are some of the reasons for a reduced service life of concrete structures. These not only represent technical and economical problems for the society, but also account for a significant waste of natural resources and creation of insurmountable environmental and ecological problems. Experience with structures subjected to severe conditions represents a unique opportunity and benchmark for quantifying the actual available safety and durability margin. In fact, for several reasons, most concrete design codes, material specifications, and other requirements for concrete structures have frequently shown to yield insufficient and unsatisfactory results, and fail to address the above problems. The problem is even more critical for structures that are subjected to extremely harsh environment and for structures that are strategic in nature such as nuclear installations, hospitals, defense facilities and schools. Recently available high to ultra-high performance concretes may find rational and valuable application in such cases. It is important, therefore, to bring people with different professional backgrounds together on a common platform to exchange innovative ideas and to develop multi-disciplinary concepts to alleviate the concerns we currently face. The previous CONSEC conferences were held in Sapporo, Japan (1995), Tromso, Norway (1998), Vancouver, Canada (2001), Seoul, South Korea (2004) and Tours, France (2007). CONSEC’10 had a modern distribution of themes and topics in accordance to the current state of the art. These included: sustainability, performance under severe environments, specialized materials, concrete construction, performance under severe loading, codes and design, maintenance and repairs and emerging research fields. CONSEC’10 has been pleased by the presence of Drs. J.M. Torrenti, T. Katayama and A.A. Torres-Acosta as keynote speakers. They presented the state of the art on important topics such as safety of concrete structures in the nuclear context, modern techniques for diagnosis of AAR, and experimental results for forecasting remaining serviceable life, respectively. For the first time, CONSEC conferences honored distinguished members of our international community. Honored researchers were Drs. Paulo Helene and Douglas Hooton who presented thought-provoking lectures on understanding durability of concrete and on concrete degradation mechanisms. Also, and for the first time, CONSEC conference awarded prizes for the best presented papers based on the criteria of innovation, scientific value, clarity of concepts, complexity

Thermal behaviour of concrete with layer of fireproofing materials exposed to fire K.S. Nguyen, C. Lanos & Y. Mélinge UEB, Equipe MTRhéo—Laboratoire Génie Civil et Génie Mécanique, Rennes, France

ABSTRACT: The high temperature thermal transfer through concrete protected by mineral fireproofing layer is studied. In order to model the thermal transfer, a numerical model has been developed taking into account the thermal properties and the thermal degradation kinetics. To circumvent some difficulties associated with the identification of thermo-physical materials parameters, a reverse method is presented. An iterative algorithm is developed to optimize the temperature deviation between numerical-experimental results of heat transfer. The method stability is firstly tested on simulated signals. Then, the heat transfer through the multi layer sample is studied. Experimental data are registered during laboratory fire tests realized following two types of standard fire curves (ISO 834 and HCM). The intrinsic parameters are calculated with the reverse method and numerical results are compared with fire tests experimental results for each standard fire curve. The obtained results appear very satisfactory and give a validation of the developed method.



Fire passive protection is mainly based on the use of insulating materials to avoid fire propagation in compartment and to protect load-bearing structures during fire. Mineral materials are often used to formulate such insulators, as in the case of building and underground structure (tunnel, subway...). Under a large range of temperature many mechanisms characterize the insulators and two main groups can be described for fire protection. The case of nonreactive materials (simple conduction characteristic) is the first of them and the case of reactive materials is the second. The mineral phases transitions are used to enhance the thermal barrier (high latent heat associated with these reactions, Fejean 2003). The fire resistance of materials can be evaluated during standard fire tests. Temperature curves such as the ISO 834 curve or the Modified Hydrocarbon Curve (HCM) are usually reproduced with the standard furnace. The tested panel constitutes one of the furnace walls and the temperature increase within thickness sample is recorded with temperature sensors. The temperature signal versus time of Non-reactive materials is mainly given by heat diffusion. With the use of reactive materials, the response becomes more complex due to the phase transition. An isothermal plateau appears (Fig. 1), and the temperature level is close to the temperature of endothermic reaction. The chemical reactions duration is in relation with the quantity of reactive material and the combination of the different steps of the phase transition. When such duration is completed, the temperature evolution within material is mainly conditioned by diffusion characteristic. These specific thermal insulators are interesting for fire protection, Baux et al. (2008) and contribute to increase the needed duration to ensure rescue and evacuation of persons. In previous papers, Baux et al. (2007) and Nguyen et al. (2007), we have presented a numerical modeling of the heat transfer evaluation including the materials phase transition. Our proposal is based on the kinetic chemical evolution modelisation to ensure the right distribution of the endothermic reaction (latent heat ΔH). The model also takes into account unsteady state of some thermo-physical properties of the material as a function of 527

temperature (density ρ(T), thermal conductivity λ(T) and heat capacity Cp(T)). Experimental measurement of these parameters is possible, especially with homogeneous compounds and one main component (e.g. gypsum panel). The numerical temperature distribution of the heat transfer results were validated with the recorded temperature during experimental fire tests, Baux et al. (2007). However, composite compounds are popular in fire protection to improve the mechanical stability. The identification of all characteristic data of such insulators is often impossible because of the complex formulation, the experimental measurements reproducibility or the analysis cost and because the measurements are not possible. To circumvent these difficulties, a reverse method is presented in this paper. This framework serves to estimate the parameters values by the use of the temperature fields T(t,z) (within sample thickness) recorded with thermocouples during fire tests. The iterative algorithm of Levenberg-Marquardt is developed to minimize the temperature deviation between numerical (R(t,P)) and experimental (Y(t)) results of heat transfer. The parameters values P are finally evaluated. The method is firstly tested on simulated signals obtained in the case of simple layer of material. Then, the calculus of the heat transfer trough the multi layer sample is realized. Experimental data are recorded during laboratory fire tests. Samples are composed with a layer of concrete and a fireproofing layer and are developed including thermocouples between the two layers. Fire tests are realized following two types of standard fire curves (ISO 834 and HCM). The intrinsic parameters are calculated with the reverse method and numerical results are compared with experimental results for each standard fire curve.

2 2.1

NUMERICAL MODELING OF HEAT TRANSFER Thermal and chemical combination

Mineral phases transition commonly used in fire protection materials are dehydration reaction (gypsum, lime, gibbsite...) or decarbonation reaction (calcite or cementitious binder...). These conversions are usually associated with modifications in the material microstructure. We use a heat transfer model particularly adapted to integrate kinetic conversion of material, Baux et al. (2007). The one dimensional equation of heat balance (thickness direction: z direction in Fig. 1) is:

ρC (T )

∂T ∂t

φg =

∂ ⎛ ∂T ⎞ ⎜ λ (T ) ⋅ ⎟ ∂z ⎝ ∂z ⎠



CONSEC10 Volume I.indb 528

5/7/2010 1:58:21 PM

T, the temperature is unknown and φg = −ρ ⋅ ΔH ⋅ dα/dt is the source term conditioned by latent heat (ΔH). In the source term, the variable is the conversion degree (α) of material. α features explicitly phases combination within the material: original material (before conversion) α = 0, altered material (after conversion) α = 1. As assumption, the latent heat distribution, function of time, is fulfilling in compliance with the chemical reaction kinetic dα/dt. The kinetic function, dα/dt, is expressed by the product of a temperature function k(T) (Arrhenius law) and a kinetic law f(α):

Downloaded by [Khanh Son Nguyen] at 20:59 09 August 2017

dα = f( dt

) k (T )

⎛ Ea ⎞ f (α ) ⋅ k exp − ⎝ R T ⎟⎠


f(α) = αm(1−α)n is the kinetic law in respect with the reaction mechanism, k and Ea are two constant parameters of the Arrhenius function and R is the perfect gas constant. The identification of the triplet kinetic parameters {f(α) = αm(1−α)n, k, Ea} can be performed using thermal analysis results DTA/TG of pure minerals (under crushed condition). In the biphasic system corresponding to the material during phase transition, the average values of thermo-physical parameters used in equation 1 must be evaluated. These parameters depend on temperature and also on conversion degree (the ratio between initial and altered phases). 2.2

Numerical development

A multi-layer structure of panel is modeled. Boundary conditions of exposed side (ISO 834 or HCM fire curves) and of the opposite unexposed side (room temperature at 20°C) are reproduced in calculation. The temperature gradients within fluid layers near the hot and cold boundaries reflect heat radiation and convection between sample and environment. The heat equation (1) is solved numerically using the finite differences method. An implicit scheme of calculation is applied to evaluate the temperatures values within the material thickness. 2.3

Results analysis

The comparison of experimental results and numerical results from the proposed model shows that it is convenient to use simulation of the heat transfer taking into account the mineral phases transitions (Baux 2007). The accuracy of such model seems to be better than the results obtained with the apparent heat capacity method. The last one remains more popular and the numerical development is easier. However, some simplified assumptions have been proposed in our model: Mechanical damages (cracking, volumetric deformation...) associated with phase transition and the migration of vapor released during reaction were thus not taken into account. Then, the convergence between simulated and experimental results can be altered, especially after the period of isothermal plateau. Finally, the boundary conditions imposed in the model (radiative and convective exchange) may differ slightly from the experimental conditions. 3 3.1

REVERSE METHOD Parameters analysis

Thermo-physical behaviour of material have some specific effects on the heat transfer. − A high value of thermal conductivity (λ) promotes the temperature variation because of the increase in the heat transfer through the panel. An exponential relation is retained in our model (λ(T) = k0 ⋅ exp(−k1/T)). We also remark that the values of λ are different for initial and altered material. − A high value of volumetric specific heat (ρCp) reduces the diffusion of the heat. It delays the temperature evolution at the unexposed side of panel sample. 529

CONSEC10 Volume I.indb 529

− Without taking into account the cracking effect due to phase transition, the higher the latent heat (ΔH), the slower the heating rate within the material. Apart from the measurable density (ρ) of original material (before conversion) and altered material (after conversion), we must estimate others thermo-physical parameters using the reverse approach. The total number of identified parameters is quite different between material with or without phase transition. 3.2

Strategy of minimization

Downloaded by [Khanh Son Nguyen] at 20:59 09 August 2017

The used methods for parameters estimation are often gradient type. In such condition, it is necessary to evaluate the sensitivity matrix. This process is based on the minimization of a quadratic equation (difference between the measured results Y(t) and the theoretical response (direct calculation) of the system R(t, P)). The objective function S(P) is written according to: S(


) ∑ ⎡⎣Yi i =1

Ri ( P )⎤⎦



P is a vector of parameters involved in the direct model, Ri(P) = R(ti,P) is the theoretical response of system by using the direct calculus at ti time, Yi = Y(ti) is the experimental measurements at ti time, I is the number of measured values by one thermocouple. With several sensors using (M totally), equation (3) may be rearranged: M


( ) ∑ ∑ ⎡⎣Yiim

Rim ( P )⎤⎦

m =1 i =1




Calculation of sensibility coefficients

The sensitivity coefficient is defined as the variation in the theoretical response R(t, P) due to a small perturbation of parameter P. It allows us to evaluate the significance of parameter perturbation with the results of heat transfer, Beck (1998). The scheme of forward difference (equation (5)) with small value ξ = 10−4 is evaluated by using the numerical calculation. This scheme is less accurate than the central difference, but it requires less calculation. Jij =

Summary of the algorithm

This method was born from the union of Levenberg method and Marquardt method and permits to solve the instability problem in the gradient type methods (e.g. Gauss method, Ozisik 2000). The iterative optimization of the Levenberg-Marquardt (LM) method is divided into 7 steps: − Step 1: direct problem calculus with initial values Pk. Response of the system R(t, Pk) and S(Pk) identification; − Step 2: Sensitivity matrix J calculus using equation (5); − Step 3: Increment ΔPk+1 determination.

N is the total number of unknown parameters and ε is prescribed tolerance, e.g. 10−3. The presence of μkI term in equations (6) is to damp oscillations and instabilities due to illconditioning character of the problem, by making its components larger than those of term JTJ. All along the first iterations, the damping parameter μk is large as the initial parameters values can be quite far from the exact parameters values. During iteration procedure, μk is gradually reduced to solve the estimate problem. The L-M method tends to the gradient method of Gauss, according to Ozisik & Orlande (2000). 4


In a first step, the validation of the iterative procedure of L-M method is realized with simulated signals. Such signals are generated by direct calculation from a set of known parameters. Temperature field within a 30 mm thickness simple layer of material exposed to ISO 834 fire is produced. Room temperature is 20°C. Such field plays as experimental data Y(t). Two cases are simulated: non-reactive material (without phase transition) and reactive material with latent heat. The reverse method is then applied on simulated temperature fields to evaluate the material parameters. The obtained results are then compared with the selected values of parameters. To reproduce the uncertainties associated with sensors, we add to the simulated temperature field a random error on Y(t) (Fig. 2). Material properties (thermal conductivity λ(T), heat capacity Cp and latent heat ΔH) are resulted from minimizing the difference between the direct calculation R(t,P) and the simulated signals Y(t). In order to start the iterative optimization, the initial values of parameters Pinit (k0, k1, Cp, ΔH) were taken 80% of real values. The stability of the calculation is controlled with the comparison of the difference δ(%) between the estimated Pestim. and exact values Pexact of parameters.

δ ( % ) = Pexact − Pestim. Pexact


Various procedures of parameters estimation are summarized in Tables 1 and 2. Thermocouple column TC shows the number of temperature curves takes into account in calculus. Iteration numbers needed for optimization procedure is in the last column. Our results are making resonable and consistent qualitatively with the conclusions drawn by Ouyang (1992): the number of used thermocouple data increases the calculus stability and leads to reduce the iteration number to achieve calculus with similar precision. The random uncertainties of experimental signals visibly penalize the estimate accuracy and leads to increase the iteration number of calculation. We note that convergence is obtained after a relative small iteration number. The simulated signals with random errors Y(t) and the calculated temperature field obtained with a direct calculus using parameters values of last line of the Tables 1 and 2 are compared on Figure 3. Reverse method results appear very reliable despite the fact that certain values of parameters are poorly estimated, e.g. k1before, k1after. 531

Two series of fire tests were conducted in the TNO laboratory (Netherlands) to analyze the properties of a fireproofing product. Samples panels (insulating product + concrete slab) were subjected to both conventional fire of the temperature-time curves of ISO 834 and HCM. Furnace (Fig. 4 left) used gas for heat generation. Insulator layer thicknesses are 20, 25, 30 and 35 mm to protect concrete slab 400 × 400 × 150 mm3. Five thermocouples are placed at the interface between insulator layer and concrete (Fig. 4 right) to measure average temperatures versus time at these positions. In the present study, we consider data recorded below 200°C for calculus. 5.2

Results of Reverse method are presented in Table 3. Experimental and calculated temperature fields are compared in Figure 5 left. We note a good consistency between experimental and numerical results in particular during the phase transition periods. 532

Extrapolating result of fire tests with temperature-time curve ISO 834 (direct calculation)

In order to validate the characteristic parameters of the material, we make a comparison between numerical results using estimated parameters of Table 3 and experimental results in the case of fire tests realized with ISO 834 curve. The results are compared in Figure 5 right. They are coherent particularly regarding the isothermal periods. As expected, the temperature evolution at the end of these plateaus is poorly simulated.

The initial objective of our study was to develop a numerical calculus of fire test. Selected model appears particularly adapted in the case of phase transition of mineral materials with high temperature. The addition of a reverse approach permits to estimate values of thermophysical material parameters. On the whole, results reveal the effectiveness of the reverse study with different categories of material (non-reactive or reactive with phase transition). So, estimated parameters lead to interest coherence between calculated temperature fields and experimental results. However, the conclusion concerning the intrinsic character of the values identified for each parameter remains to be assessed. The thermo-mechanical interaction is not yet takes into account in our heat transfer model. Cracks and volume variations usually observed during mineral phase transition affect coherence between numerical results and experimental results. This problem should be shortly studied. However, our reverse study permits to consider various practical applications with industrial partner: e.g. a technical design of fireproofing solutions or optimization of product formulations.
