Abstract: The present investigation is mainly focused on study the temperature effects on SCC reinforced with steel fibers on M40 grade of concrete. The main objective of the investigation is inspired from the real world – to know the strength of a concrete after subjected to an elevated temperature. Steel fibres with an aspect ratio of 40varied at a fibre dosage of 0, 1, and 1.5%by the weight of the cement used in this investigation. In this study concrete is exposed to five different residual conditions. In addition to the room temperature there are four different temperatures of 100˚c, 300˚c, 500˚c and 800˚c are considered at a retention period of 1, 2, 3 and 4 hours in muffle furnace. Compressive strength conducted after 28 days of curing. From the experimental results it is observed that SCC with steel fibres reduced the workability on the contrary there is increase in compressive strength observed with the addition of fibres. It is also observed that SCC with steel fibres has shown the better performance compared to control mix at elevated temperatures. This is mainly due to fibres are participated in delaying the cracks.
