The method of concrete mix design used in this study aims to achieve the identical specified design strength, applying different types and replacement ratio of mineral admixtures and afterwards, fire tests were conducted using the standard time-temperature curve specified in the ASTM E119 to identify the influences of the types of mineral admixtures on the fire resistance performance of high strength concrete(HSC). The least spalling was observed in the test specimen containing blast furnace slag as a partial replacement of cement, while the most significant spalling phenomena were observed in the blast furnace slag test specimen that silica-fume was added in. In particular, the reasonable volume of spalling was observed when solely replaced by silica fume. However, the influence of the cement replacement by silica fume and blast furnace slag on the increases of spalling can be explained through blocked pores by the fine particles of silica fume, leading to decreases in permeability.
