Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC) has emerged in recent years as a new construction material, which is seriously considered as substitutes for traditional composite materials. However, the practical utility and design of innovative materials like TRC is hindered by the lack of standardized specifications, including required lap splice length of textile fabrics. This study aims to investigate the structural behavior of TRC members subjected
to uniaxial tensile force, therefore providing knowledge for further research on determining overlap length.
