For many years concrete has been the major building material for most construction. It is of primary importance that fire fighters or fire investigators have a full understanding of the properties of concrete so that better control of the fire scene is achieved. This, in turn, not only help to ensure a safer fire-fighting job but also a more successful fire investigation. So far as the fire scene investigation in concerned, knowledge about the thermal behaviour of concrete can help the investigators to determine the highest temperature that a particular spot of a fire scene has ever reached thereby providing data which may be of value in reconstructing the course of the fire.
