This study investigated the effect of specimen shape (cylindrical and cubical) on the compressive strength and elastic modulus of steel fiber reinforced concrete after exposure to the temperatures of 150, 300, 450, and 600 °C. Results show that the compressive strength and elastic modulus of the composite significantly reduce with the increase in temperature, independent of the specimen shape. Additionally, a significant difference in the compressive strength and elastic modulus conversion

This study contributes to the limited amount of studies regarding the effect of elevated temperatures on steel fiber reinforced concretes and shows that the elevated temperatures may have a significant effect in the conversion factors for cube-cylinder.
