Abstract: The design principles described in the following are based on the fracture mechanical approach known as the fictitious crack model,which relies on the so-called stress-crack opening relationship ó w (w )as the basic material input.
The design method is applicable for Steel Fibre Reinforced Concretes (SFRC)that xhibit tension softening behaviour .
The method can also be used for other Fibre Reinforced Cementitious Composites (FRCC) that exhibit tension softening behaviour as well as plain concrete (which is assumed always to exhibit tension softening behaviour).
The following cases are covered in this document: Cross section subject to combination of axial force, bending moment and shear force.
Reinforcement can be a combination of conventional re-bars and fibres.
Slab on grade subjected to shrinkage.
