Static resistance loading of reinforced concrete beams using normal and steel fiber self-compact concrete, with loading applied at the one – third of the beam (four points) was studied. The reinforced concrete beams have been designed under static load according to ACI-318R-2014 [1]. The static loading consists of dead load and residential live load based on ASCE-07-2010 [2].as the beam a part from residential building that scaled down and modeled to not at full scale but as like the traditional experimental test. A three-dimensional finite element models by ANSYS15.0 software [3], have been established to provide a numerical solution as an alternative approach to the experimental models, with some acceptable accuracy. Experimental tests for normal, self – compact and with and without steel fiber concrete to specify compressive strength, tensile strength, and modulus of elasticity presented. Modeling analysis as simply supported beams as approximate situation of beam that was performed to evaluate the performance of ordinary, self-compact and steel fiber self-compact concrete beams under static loading.
