Abstract: Experimental test have carried out to investigate the behavior of residual tensile strength of concrete prepared using normal and high strength concrete. For the same purpose, cylindrical and prism-shaped specimens of concrete were caste and consecutively subjected to heating and cooling condition in the laboratory-controlled environment. A hold period of three hours was provided to impart the heating-cooling phenomenon inside the electrical furnace at four different sets of temperatures. The elevated temperatures chosen for the present tensile behavior study are 200oC, 400oC, 600oC, and 800oC. Strength was also determined at the ambient environment for the purpose of comparing the effects of thermal loads on the behavior of strength. A significant loss in tensile strength has been observed in concrete mixes at various temperatures. The outcomes of the current experimental work are termed useful for understanding key mechanical characteristics of concrete under the effect of thermal loads.
