Earthquakes cause devastating damage to the buildings and structures, but if earthquake events are followed by fire may cause more damage than the earthquake itself. After a major earthquake, the ability of the structure to resist fire drastically reduces. So, the risk of fires following earthquakes are considered significantly higher than normal. Recently, steel-concrete composite structures have been increasingly used in modern structures due to the respective advantages of steel and concrete. Concrete filled steel tube (CFT) columns are an excellent example of composite construction because of its efficiencies and advantages. One important advantage is their high fire resistance because in this system, the steel tube prevents the concrete core from spalling and the concrete core provides additional capacity to the steel tube. Many researchers have studied behavior of axially loaded CFT columns under cyclic loading and fire loading separately.
