O presente estudo avalia a performance de leis constitutivas para o concreto reforado

com fibras de ao (CRFA) tracionado a partir do desempenho de modelos de flexo em


estimar o momento resistente de vigas em CRFA. Para este fim, quatro modelos so
analisados, dois cuja lei constitutiva definida empiricamente, ACI 544.4R-88 e CECS
38 (2004), e dois, RILEM TC 162-TDF (2003) e CEB-FIP (2010), com lei constitutiva
fundamentada no conceito de tenses residuais fRi, as quais so obtidas
experimentalmente. Para a realizao das anlises, foi coletado da literatura um banco
de dados (BD) e adotou-se como indicador de desempenho o parmetro =
mR,exp/mR,teo, que representa o quociente entre os momentos resistentes registrados
experimentalmente (BD) e os estimados pelos modelos. Apesar dos resultados
predominantemente favorveis segurana, verificou-se que os modelos mais eficientes
retratam o comportamento ps-fissura do CRFA tracionado com base nas tenses fRi.
Para os modelos respaldados em leis empricas, sugere-se a sua aplicao apenas no
mbito de pr-dimensionamento/anlise.

The current work assesses the constitutive laws performance for steel fibre reinforced
concrete (SFRC) in tension with regard to moment strength of SFRC beams appraised
through flexural models. For that specific purpose, four theoretical models are
investigate, two of them with empirical features describing their constitutive laws, ACI
544.4R-88 and CECS 38 (2004), and another ones, RILEM TC 162-TDF (2003) and
CEB-FIP (2010), with laws based in residual strength fRi concept, which are
determined by tests. A database (DB) was collected from the literature to perform the
analysis and the parameter = mR,exp/mR,teo has been taken as performance index,
where mR,exp and mR,teo represent respectively the moment strength recorded
experimentally (DB) and evaluated by the models. Herein the safe results have been
predominated. However, the most accurate models have their constitutive laws written
in terms of fRi. In these circumstances it was judged advisable to use models with
empirical laws just in pre-design/analysis estate.
