Size effect and strength correction factors 61 2 Proposed model The shear models consider two main types of failure in concrete members. These are either sliding or crushing. The compression field models assume the concrete crushes at a stress that is some fraction of the concrete compressive strength (Collins 1978, Muttoni et al 1997).
