Most experimental studies have been performed to investigate the fire resistance of a single member, beam, column, wall, and slab. However, a limited number of experimental studies have been performed on full-scale structures, especially reinforced concrete (RC) structures. This paper aims at investigating temperature distribution on a full-scale RC structure under fire. RC structure is constructed 2,400(width) × 1,000 (length) × 2,100 (height) mm and consists of one column, two beams, two walls, and two slabs. This specimen is heated on one side with ISO-834 standard time-temperature curve for 2 hours and temperature distributions during the test are measured using thermocouples inside the structure. To investigate the relationship of temperature distributions between full-scale structure and a single member, the experimental results of full-scale structure are compared with those of a single member throughout the other experimental studies.
