This article presents results of fire spalling tests on small concrete slabs and studies of material parameters that may increase its occurrence. Experimental techniques enabling to study and determination of material features are presented and discussed. Experimental studies on spalling behaviour of elements were carried out on seven different concrete mixes with constant content of cement paste and mortar. Research aimed at determining influence of the following parameters: w/c ratio (0.30; 0.45; 0.60), cement type (CEM I, CEM III) and type of aggregates (riverbed gravel, granite, basalt) on fire concrete spalling. Paper discusses also the influence of cold rim that forms while testing slab-like element is subjected to one-side heating.
