In order to protect a bridge against the fire attack mainly due to the turning over accident of a tank lorry vehicle, a Fire Protection Panel has been developed by the authors, because in a last decade it can see some serious damaged examples of viaduct and bridge by fire accident in USA, Germany, Japan and so on. Some of those bridges had fall down by fire attack and self-weight of bridge. The authors carried out the fire test and a numerical analysis of steel-concrete composite girder assembling Fire Protection Panel. This paper reports on the outline of the Fire Protection Panel and the experimental results of the temperature distributions in the steel girder compared with the analytical ones.
