Abstract:
Relatively few tests have been carried out on shear in fiber reinforced concrete beams. The experimental work included in this investigation is comprised of tests on seven normally reinforced and fiber reinforced concrete beams in combined bending and shear. Considering the observations made in this investigation and using the findings of other investigators, an empirical relationship is suggested for predicting the shear strength of fiber reinforced concrete beams. The proposed relationship compares well with the reported test results in literature.
