Abstract:This paper presents the research activities in the field of textile reinforced concrete carried out by the Institute of Textile and Clothing Technology (ITB) of the Technische Universitaet Dresden, Germany. Extensive research has been conducted with the aim to fully use the tensile strength of the applied high-performance fiber material in the reinforcing textile. To achieve this, the textile machinery was adjusted and improved and new testing methods were developed. This research has resulted so far in several innova-tive applications for the repair of buildings as well as the production of precast concrete members. This paper was originally presented in 2005 Spring ACI Convention, New York under the title "State of the art and perspectives of textile reinforcements of con-crete components."
