Abstract In this work we follow a multiscale methodology to characterize the structural performance of post-tensioned steel fiber-reinforced concrete dry joints. At the material level, we use an experimentally validated lattice-particle model whose input parameters are the properties of the different phases themselves (i.e., mortar, aggregates, fibers) and mixing information. This model is used to obtain the mechanical properties used in the structural-level simulations of the joints in terms of constitutive laws. The structural analyses are performed using the concrete damage plasticity model, which allows us to quantify the effect of fiber addition on the shear strength of the dry joints and their ductility. Our simulations agree well with other macroscopic models in the case of plain concrete and show, once again, that the American Association of State Highway Transportation Officials (AASHTO) code overestimates the nominal shear capacity of multiple-keyed joints. Regarding the fiber addition, we observe that it promotes an important increase in the shear capacity, but the prestress level is still more relevant in this sense. Based on our simulations, we propose an updated shear capacity estimate accounting for the fiber volume fraction. Finally, a clear increase in the ductility of the joint is observed when the fiber volume content is increased. © 2020 by the authors.
