Fire is considered to be a major threat for buildings and its surroundings. Fire can be occurred at any stage of construction and the time or intensity cannot be predicted earlier. Concrete encased composite beams are those in which structural steel is fully covered by concrete. Concrete is considered to be a fire resistant material to an extent. So by providing concrete as cover to the structural member the fire resistance of the member can be improved. But as the temperature increases there will be spalling of concrete and steel get exposed to more fire. In order to identify the behaviour, finite element software Abaqus 6.10 is used in this study. Time temperature chart for the member is also plotted in this paper.
