Effect of moisture migration and water vapour pressure build-up on concrete spalling type

In a new study, the effect of moisture migration and water vapor pressure build-up within high-strength concrete (HSC) on its spalling property is empirically investigated at various heating rates and compressive strengths with different water-binder ratios (W/B).
