An analytical description of fibre reinforced sand peak shear strength in direct shear loading conditions is presented. In geotechnical engineering, the direct shear conditions are directly applicable to the sliding of a long slope. An energy-based homogenization technique is employed, and it is shown that the simulated results are in a good agreement with the experimental data.
