Reinforced concrete beams are now one of the most common building elements. The response of simply supported reinforced concrete beams with Metakaolin as a supplementary material in place of cement with River Sand and M-Sand subjected to static load was quantitatively evaluated and highlighted using the Finite Element Method. The dimensions of the examined beam were 150 mm x 250 mm x 3000 mm. To replicate concrete and steel, the SOLID 65 element and LINK 180 were employed.The analytical and experimental findings for a reinforced concrete beam produced with Metakaolin in terms of flexural and crack behaviour for various loading circumstances were compared using 3D FE modelling in ANSYS R 17.0. It was revealed that the experimental and analytical values showed a good association based on the findings.
