Testing and analysis of fatigue behavior of homogeneous materials, such as concrete or other cement based composites, are one major problem being studied in this scientific field. In this contribution, adaptation of the compact tension test, well known its use in the testing of metallic materials, is pursued for crack propagation rate measurement on cement based composites using cylindrical specimens. In particular, the influence of the steel bars position on the fracture parameters is studied in the modified compact tension test. The numerical study is performed by ATENA 2D. The results are compared by Load-COD diagrams and the variation of the fracture parameters values is discussed.
