Abstract: A numerical study on the fracture behavior of steel fiber reinforced concrete slabs on grade for industrial pavements is presented. Finite element analyses have been carried out by using a commercial finite element code based on nonlinear fracture mechanics where user subroutines have been implemented. Moreover, a stiffness matrix for FRC with primary and secondary cracks has been added to the model. The comparison between experimental and numerical results shows a good agreement and supplies useful information for design provisions. The presence of construction joints in the slab has been considered.
