This study aims to develop a practical procedure for the nonlinear structural consequence analysis of structures under fire. The thermal and structural response analysis have been performed in this study using a commercial nonlinear Finite Element Analysis (FEA) code. The results of the structural response analysis are then compared to the experimental results. This study concludes by presenting methods for fire load applications and nonlinear material modeling. The insights offered by the modeling techniques and analysis procedures presented in this study should be very useful and practical in the fire risk assessment of offshore structures.
