    The paper summarises a Ph.D. project on development of a new design basis for fibre reinforced concrete ground slabs. The stress-crack openingrelationship is a well know basic material property of theso-called fictitious crack model for concrete. In the presentstudy it is shown how the stress-crack opening relationship can beused to descibe the properties of fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) intension and how the stress-crack opening relationship can beapplied in a simple design scheme for pavements. The projectincludes development of design tools, experiments to determine thestress-crack opening relationship by direct tension tests and fullscale tests on FRC-slabs cast on ground.
