In July of 2006 three full scale fire tests were undertaken on a 23 storey cast in situ concrete structure. This paper provides an overview of the experimental set up of Test One which involved a fully developed post flashover fire in a 17m2 compartment. Full scale fire tests on concrete structures are in-frequent and complete data sets rare. This experiment provides a complete data set for both the fire behaviour and the structural response in both the heating and cooling phases of the fire. The fire behaviour and subsequent structural response are examined and explained.
