Geopolymer concrete can resist fire quite well when compared with conventional concrete. Recent studies to observe the behaviour of geopolymer composite column under the effect of fire are very few. In this paper results in terms of stress, strain and deformation of geopolymer composite column expressed to elevated temperature are presented. It was observed that geopolymer composite column performs better at elevated temperatures than the conventional composite column. This tests are performed with four composite column with geopolymer concrete and conventional concrete which is tested at four elevated temperatures i.e., 400 oC, 500 oC, 600 oC, 700 oC and 800 oC to evaluate the strength parameters. It results geopolymer concrete column can be used where fire disaster chances are high.
