Abstract:
Strengthening by textile reinforced concrete noticeably increases both the ultimate load bearing capacity as well as the serviceability - especially deflections, crack widths and crack spacing are reduced. Beside that there are still some practical applications. This paper will give an overview of the ongoing research work with this new composite material Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC).
