A comprehensive database of recycled aggregate concrete and companion natural aggregate concrete beams' flexural and shear strength was compiled from 217 experimental results. Strict criteria were applied to determine the failure type. Sub-databases were formed with beams failing in flexure and shear with and without stirrups. On each sub-database the applicability of Eurocode 2 provisions for flexural and shear strength to recycled aggregate concrete beams was tested. The results show that flexural and shear strength of recycled aggregate concrete beams without stirrups is successfully predicted by Eurocode 2. As for beams with stirrups, further research and experimental results are necessary.
