An analytical approach, based on experimental data, is used to determine the ultimate moment capacity and the cracking moment of fiber reinforced concrete slabs. Assuming a certain failure mechanism, prediction equations are developed that give the moment capacities, once the splitting tensile strength of the fiber reinforced concrete and the thickness of the slabs are known. The analytical predictions fit the experimental data for both the one- way and two-way slabs.
