Abstract: A full scale Reinforced concrete (RC) frame assemblage was constructed and was induced with a predefined level of damage by subjecting the frame to simulated seismic loads. It was then tested against a designed 1 hour compartment fire. The RC frame was instrumented with a number of sensors which recorded strains, displacements and temperatures during the test. This paper provides a report on a full scale RC frame subjected to post earthquake fire. The frame could withstand the fire without collapse however the residual capacity of the frame was reduced to 65% of the original. Important observations have been made about the development of the temperatures and displacements in various elements during the test.
