The goal is to investigate whether current modelling techniques, in combination with standard test data on strain softening of concrete under mode I and uniaxial compression are sufficient tools for correctly predicting the behaviour of over-reinforced concrete beams. The reason for choosing over-reinforced concrete beams is that they are relatively simple to test and that the softening part of the compression behaviour has a significant influence of the overall behaviour of the beams. Three different types of concrete at two different size scales have been tested.
