In the present work the predictive performance of the two approaches proposed by Model Code 2010 for the evaluation of the shear capacity of fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) elements flexurally reinforced with conventional steel bars is assessed considering a database (DBs) constituted by 80 FRC beams do not including conventional transverse reinforcements. The accuracy of these shear models is evaluated by statistical analysis of the prediction ratio between the experimental and estimated shear capacity of the beams of the DBs, and applying the Demerit Points Classification approach for further information about the reliability of the two approaches in design context. Due to the absence of the post-cracking experimental characterization of the FRC used in several beams considered in the DBs, an approach was developed for estimating the residual flexural strength parameters from the most relevant known variables of steel fiber reinforcement mechanisms for concrete, namely the fiber volume and aspect ratio, and the concrete compressive and tensile strength. The residual flexural strength prediction model is assessed and its influence on the performance of the shear resistance models
