The study reported in this paper deals with the shear transfer problem across an initially uncracked plane, in concrete containing short and discrete steel fibers. An attempt has been made to predict rationally the shear transfer behavior of reinforced fiber concrete and to provide some experimental evidence. Within the scope of the study, the conclusion that can be drawn include: 1) The strength and deformation characteristics of reinforced concrete across an initially uncracked plane can be enhanced by the use of discrete steel fibers in the concrete mix; Modification to the softened truss model gives good prediction of the strength as well as the load-deformation response of an initially uncracked plane in reinforced fiber concrete represented by a push-off specimen.
