Over 200 RILEM Technical Recommendations have been produced by RILEM Technical Committees. Many of these recommendations have been adopted in research and practice, and are used by international standardisation bodies, as a basis for their work.
All RILEM recommendations reflect the state-of-the-art at the time of publishing. Note that these documents may be superseded later by more recent recommendations.

This test method evaluates the tensile behaviour of
steel fibre-reinforced concrete either in terms of areas
under the load-def lection curve or by the load bearing
capacity at a certain deflection or crack mouth opening
displacement (CMOD)obtained by testing a simply sup-
ported notched beam under three-point loading.
This standard is not intended to be applied in the
case of shotcrete.
This test method can be used for the determination of:
- the limit of proportionality (LOP),i.e.the stress which
corresponds to the point on the load-def lection or load-
crack mouth opening displacement curve (=>F(L) )defined
in part 5 as limit of proportionality;
- two equivalent flexural tensile strengths which iden-
tify the material behaviour up to the selected deflection.
These equivalent f lexural tensile strengths are determi-
ned according to part 5;
- four residual flexural tensile strengths which identify
the material behaviour at a selected deflection or
CMOD.The residual flexural tensile strengths are cal-
culated according to procedures in part 5.
If the objective of the test is to calculate equivalent
flexural tensile strength,it is necessary to measure the
deflection.However if only residual f lexural tensile
strengths are calculated,one can choose between the mea-
surement of def lection and/or CMOD.A relation bet-
ween mid-span deflection and CMOD is given in part 6.
