This note describes how steel fibre reinforced concrete ground bearing slabs are designed.

Introduction
The design of ground bearing reinforced concrete floors has changed significantly in recent times; the major development being the increasingly common adoption of steel fibre reinforcement in concrete floor slabs. This
was described in Technical Guidance Note No. 30 (Level 1) which introduced ground bearing slabs with respect to their construction and detailing.

This Technical Guidance Note describes how steel fibre reinforced concrete ground bearing slabs are designed. This is a relatively recent innovation that continues to evolve. As such, this note aims to motivate the design and
development of steel fi bre reinforced ground bearing slabs, based on the most up to date information available at the time of writing.
