Quantity of the fibres intersecting the unit cross section is a relevant parameter. Firstly, the residual tension strength, which is the base of the material model of the fibre reinforced concrete, depends most on the number of fibres intersecting the cracked cross section. Secondly, by counting the fibres on the cross section of the broken test specimen the non-uniform distribution of the fibres can be examined and taken into account during the evaluation. Therefore, for most of the material model the initial parameter is the quantity of fibres intersecting the unit cross section.
