This paper presents results from an experimental study on the temperature effect of reinforced concrete cantilever beam. Methods: Three cantilever beams with fixed end were tested in fire furnace, the distribution of temperature field, the deformation law and the fire resistance of the cantilever beam were obtained. Results: Results from these tests indicate that the horizontal section of the temperature curve is about 100 degrees centigrade. The bending capacity of the beam is weaken at high
