Size effect is known as a relative change (decrease) of the structural properties (peak resistance, ductility, etc.) when the structure size increases. In quasi brittle materials such as concrete, this is a recognized phenomenon.

In this report the size effect of compressive failure of concrete members exposed to uniaxial compression as well as compressive strain gradients is discussed.
