Experimental investigation of over-reinforced concrete beams of three different types of concrete and at two different size scales
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.
