Twenty-eight FRC beams were tested in four-point bending to compare the experimental ultimate shear capacity with the analytical models published by RILEM and fib. Different types of fibre, fibre dosages and span over depth ratios were investigated on a limited series of FRC mixtures (steel, synthetic and hybrid). All the FRC specimens presented an increase of the shear capacity that the models underestimate.
