Abstract: When exposed to high temperatures, the structural members and frames have their bearing capacity compromised because the physical characteristics and material resistance used in the structures deteriorate during exposure to fire, resulting in a considerable loss of strength and stiffness. In this context, the present work carries out a whole thermomechanical analysis of steel members and frames using the Finite Element Method (FEM) inelastic formulation based on the Refined Plastic Hinge Method (RPHM) coupled with the Strain Compatibility Method (SCM). The use of SCM allows for a more realistic analysis against the design codes prescriptions. So even under high temperatures, SCM is used for both evaluation of bearing capacity and stiffness parameters. To do this, the steel behavior used in the structure numerical modeling must be described in a consistent manner through its constitutive relationship. A comparison of the results obtained here with the numerical and experimental results available in the literature suggest the effectiveness of coupling SCM/RPHM and that such a methodology can provide reliable analyses of steel members and frames subjected to high temperatures.
