Over 200 RILEM Technical Recommendations have been produced by RILEM Technical Committees. Many of these recommendations have been adopted in research and practice, and are used by international standardisation bodies, as a basis for their work.
All RILEM recommendations reflect the state-of-the-art at the time of publishing. Note that these documents may be superseded later by more recent recommendations.

The design of steel fibre reinforced concrete according to
the (sigma)-(epsilon)-method is based on the same fundamentals as the
design of normal reinforced concrete. The proposed method
is valid for steel fibre concrete with compressive strengths
of up to C50/60. Steel fibres can also be used in high
strength concrete, i.e. concrete with f(fck) => 50 N/mm(2).
However, care should be taken that the steel fibres do not
break in a brittle way before being pulled out.
The European pre-standard ENV 1992-1-1 (Eurocode 2:
Design of Concrete Structures - Part 1: General rules and
rules for buildings)  has been used as a general
framework for this design method proposed.
It must be emphasised that these calculation guidelines
are intended for cases in which the steel fibres are used for
structural purposes and not e.g. for slabs on grade. They
also do not apply for other applications such as those in
which increased resistance to plastic shrinkage, increased
resistance to abrasion or impact, etc. are aimed for.
