The main purpose of this study is to investigate the nonlinear response of reinforced concrete beams under standard fire conditions. With this purpose, the 2-D nonlinear structural analysis of a chosen reinforced concrete simple beam is carried out. This beam is exposed to fire form three sides and fixed distributed loads on top of it. In these structural analyses the changes of material properties of concrete and reinforcements according to increasing temperatures are taken into account. Results drawn from these analyses are compared with the results from some simplified methods and put forward some conclusions and recommendations concerning the fire design of reinforced concrete beams.
