This paper investigates the relationship between spalling behavior and weight loss for ultra-high-strength fiber-reinforced concrete (UFC) containing different types short fibers (jute, PP, WSPVA) in high-temperature environments at 400, 600 and 800 °C. The explosive spalling that occurred under these conditions caused severe damage to the control specimen but only slight damage to the specimen with jute fiber. It was therefore inferred that adding 0.19% by volume of natural jute fibers (length: 12 mm) to UFC is effective in the prevention of spalling-related damage.
