	%X This work had three stages. In the first stage was
examined pull-out process for steel fiber was embedded into a
concrete by one end and was pulled out of concrete under the angle to
pulling out force direction. Angle was varied. On the obtained forcedisplacement
diagrams were observed jumps. For such mechanical
behavior explanation, fiber channel in concrete surface microscopical
experimental investigation, using microscope KEYENCE VHX2000,
was performed.
At the second stage were obtained diagrams for load- crack
opening displacement for breaking homogeneously reinforced and
layered fiberconcrete prisms (with dimensions 10x10x40cm)
subjected to 4-point bending. After testing was analyzed main crack.
At the third stage elaborated prediction model for the fiberconcrete
beam, failure under bending, using the following data: a) diagrams
for fibers pulling out at different angles; b) experimental data about
steel-straight fibers locations in the main crack. Experimental and
theoretical (modeling) data were compared.
