|Abstract:||Prepared by individual authors, the papers express personal views as a basis for future work: Early experimental investigations to establish the tensile strength of concrete (Siviero, Simoncelli); Use of tensile strength of concrete: a designers point of view (Corres-Peiretti, Caldentey); Problems with the use of concrete tensile strength in the design practice (Duda); Shear transfer by dowel action and friction as related to the size effect (Vintzeleou); The evaluation of effective tensile strength of concrete in high strength reinforced concrete elements (Russo); Material properties and structural response of concrete in tension ( Schumm); Size effect in concrete and RC structures - diagonal shear and bending (Ozbolt, Eligehausen); Size effect in shear of concrete beams predicted by fracture mechanics (Niwa); Lattice model with concrete tension members for the shear resisting mechanism of concrete beams (Niwa); Fracture mechanics evaluation of structural concrete members (McCabe); Modelling the shear behaviour and size effect of structural concrete members without transverse reinforcement (Reineck); Experimental evidence and code rules in Japan on the size effect in flexure and shear (Maruyama); The influence of concrete strength, distribution of longitudinal reinforcement, and member size on the shear strength of RC beams (Kuchma, Végh, Simionopoulos, Stanik, Collins).|
