The present work is aimed at investigating the behaviour of prestressed concrete members under the effects of natural fires, that are characterized by the presence of a cooling phase. To this aim, several numerical analyses were carried out on a typical P/C section in order to highlight the most significant parameters. The results show that the high insulating power of concrete, together with the rate of cooling, play a decisive role for the failure probability of P/C members in the cooling phase.
