In this paper, based on experimental and theoretical study, the responses of bonded and unbonded prestressed concrete plane-frame structures on fire are discussed. It is proved that temperature rise process, loads, form of prestressed structure, prestresse degree and controlling stress can all effect fire resistance of prestressed structure. At the end, some suggestions for improving fire-resistance are put forward.
