	%X In this paper, the effects of fiber types and elevated
temperatures on compressive strength, modulus of rapture and the
bond characteristics of fiber reinforced concretes (FRC) are
presented. By using the three different types of fibers (steel fiber-SF,
polypropylene-PPF and polyvinyl alcohol-PVA), FRC specimens
were produced and exposed to elevated temperatures up to 800 ºC for
1.5 hours. In addition, a plain concrete (without fiber) was produced
and used as a control. Test results obtained showed that the steel fiber
reinforced concrete (SFRC) had the highest compressive strength,
modulus of rapture and bond stress values at room temperatures, the
residual bond, flexural and compressive strengths of both FRC and
plain concrete dropped sharply after exposure to high temperatures.
The results also indicated that the reduction of bond, flexural and
compressive strengths with increasing the exposed temperature was
relatively less for SFRC than for plain, and FRC with PPF and PVA.
