Formulas for calculating deformation and strain moduli using experimental tensile deformation diagrams of a steel-fiber-reinforced concrete are derived. The block diagram of a nonlinear iterative calculation, which previously have never been shown in the literature, is presented. Results of the calculation are tabulated. The opening of cracks and deflection of a bent element are also calculated, and the results are compared with those found based on limiting states.
