In the present investigation, an analysis of the fire resistance of the steel-reinforced concrete-filled steel tubular columns with circular cross-sections was carried out by means of numerical simulation. The development of the study was carried out by means of numerical simulation to predict the behavior of the column against fire. The results of the numerical model are validated by comparing the temperature levels obtained through experimental tests. From the results obtained, it is shown that the increase in the contact area between the steel and the concrete reduces the average temperature of the column, which implies a greater resistance to fire. The fire resistance of the columns with the steel profile designs are between 3.4 - 3.6 times higher compared to the column only made of concrete, which is an indication of the excellent performance of the steel-reinforced concrete-filled steel tubular columns with circular crosssections columns. In general, the methodology proposed in this research allows the analysis of the thermal physical phenomena of the different columns used for the construction of buildings.
