Abstract The paper outlines the concepts that underlie the methods widely used for the analysis and design of concrete structures and provides evidence that shows the large deviation between predicted and real behaviour. It is shown that this deviation reflects the incompatibility between the assumed and the experimentally established behaviour of concrete. Moreover, it demonstrates that through the use of valid experimental information, it is possible to develop a common theoretical basis for the development of analysis and design methods capable of producing realistic predictions for a wide range of structural-concrete configurations subject to short-term loading conditions ranging from static and impact.
