Abstract : A probabilistic model of spatial variation of concrete strength is considered and the corresponding statistical size effect is discussed. This interpretation of the size effect together with the recently developed method of digital simulation of random function makes it possible to demonstrate the statistical size effect in terms of a numerical example. The same interpretation is also used in a failure analysis. (Author)
