This paper aims at presenting the numerical modelling tools used for the description of the nonlinear behaviour up to rupture of reinforced and prestressed concrete beams sustaining both chemical and mechanical loadings. Continuum Damage Mechanics applied to concrete and steel, coupled with a multifibre description of the structure seems to be a relevant choice for such a purpose.
