    A simplified version of the Diverse Embedment Model (DEM) for steel fiber-reinforced concrete (SFRC) is derived by eliminating the double numerical integration, which complicates the calculation procedure of the DEM. To simplify the DEM, fiber slip on the longer embedded side is not considered...
