An experimental investigation on the behavior of concrete slabs reinforced with conventional steel bars and steel fibers and subjected to flexural loading is presented. An experimental program consisting of tests on steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) slabs with conventional reinforcement and reinforced concrete (RC) slabs was conducted under flexural loading. SFRC slabs include two types of slabs containing steel fibers in two different volume fractions i.e. 1% and 1.5%. The size of slab was fixed. The dimensions of the slabs were (900 x 450 x 50mm and 900 x 450 x 75mm). Tests on conventionally reinforced concrete slabs showed enhanced properties compared to that of RC slabs. The ultimate loads obtained in the experimental investigation were also compared with the theoretical loads for all types of slabs specimens, containing steel fibers in different proportions, have been conducted to establish load?deflection curves. The various parameters, such as, first crack load, ultimate load and with and without steel fibers have been carried out and comparison was made on significant stages of loading.
