Concrete cylinders with a design strength of 100 to 150 N/mm 2 were subjected to thermal histories with different maximum temperatures simulating actual structures to examine the development of their mechanical properties. The tendencies of the mechanical properties of concrete subjected to a maximum temperature exceeding 45 to 60°C were found to significantly differ from those of concrete cured at lower temperatures. The authors thus propose a technique for estimating the compressive strength
