I am doing an analysis of a simple supported reinforced concrete beam in Ansys Workbench 14.5. I would like to know is there any formula in the Finite Element Analysis that govern the performance of the beam? Thank you very much in advance.

When you say performance, what are your criteria? Are you just trying to match the max. deflection or max. loads etc? If so, you can always use the dimensions of your beam, Calculate the analytical solution and compare it with the resulting finite element solution. If you are looking at calculating the factor of safety etc. of your beam you can do that too.
There are some good posts by Peter in this forum as well.
