There is no true resilient steel to fire, as fire is an uncontrolled phenomenon whose temperature can sore up. Fire is one of the worst disasters that can cause damage to structures. Like any other material. steel also has a weak point which is when the temperature of structural steel rises around 425°C, it begins to soften and by the time it reaches about 650°C, half the strength is lost. This condition eventually leads to structural integrity failure. But by using TMT steel reinforced bars, it can withstand higher temperatures than normal steel bars and maintain the structural integrity.
