Abstract:
A methodology is presented that allows calculation of plain and fiber reinforced concrete for moments and normal forces. The developed procedure is a simple method to derive the internal forces, crack width, effective stiffness, and toughness. The basis for verification of the proposed analytical procedure comprises broad parametric experimental studies that include variations of the fiber diameter, fiber length, fiber content, and depth of the specimen. Interaction diagrams are given for practical use.
