When cementitious composites are loaded in tension, cracks initiate and propagate at very low stress levels, leading to a non-linear constitutive behaviour. A first attempt to model this behaviour (the well-known ACK-model) was done by Aveston et al. (1) and Aveston and Kelly (2). However,...
The collaborative research center “Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC) – Development of a New Technology” (SFB 532) established at Aachen University (RWTH Aachen) is investigating the basic mechanisms of this new composite material. The use of technical textiles as reinforcement material in...
The new composite material T extile R einforced C oncrete (TRC) is a promising development which may open up entirely new fields for the application of the construction material concrete. The possible more filigree structures with high quality surfaces make TRC an attractive choice for the...
Practical manufacturing and use of thin cement-based elements composites require an industrial cost-effective production process in addition to proper reinforcement materials to improve the tensile and flexural performance. Reinforcement by means of fabric materials is an alternative to the use...
Using test results it is demonstrated how thin layers of concrete with textile reinforcement can be used for strengthening for reinforced concrete (RC) members. The enhancement of bending capacity is illustrated with flexural strengthened RC-slabs. It is also established that the shear capacity...
