Concrete structures were designed to withstand various types of environment conditions from mild to very severe conditions. Fire represents one of the most severe environmental conditions to which concrete structures may be subjected especially in close conduct structure like tunnel. This paper focuses on the spalling of geopolymer high strength concrete exposed to hydrocarbon fire for minimum 2 hours. From the fire test, geopolymer concrete can be classified as a good fire resistance construction materials based on spalling performance of high strength concrete when exposed to hydrocarbon fire. A maximum of 1% (excluding water moisture loss) of spalling recorded for high strength geopolymer concrete wall panel. No explosive spallings were observed for high strength geopolymer concrete.
