A comparative analysis of the spalling of (a) cores made of 3 concrete mixes embedded into 3 slabs made of the 3 same concrete mixes; and (b) 3 reference slabs made again of the same 3 concrete mixes has been made. Samples have been exposed to the French Increased HydroCarbon temperature curve. Results confirm that concrete spalling phenomena is not only related to the material properties. Concrete spalling is also very much influenced by the geometry of the samples.
