Title: Flexural Strengthening of RC Structures with Textile-Reinforced Concrete

Abstract:Textile-reinforced concrete (TRC) is a high-performance composite in which technical textiles made of high-performance fibers are embedded in a fine-grained concrete matrix. Textile reinforced concrete extends concrete applications to completely new fields. Besides slender new concrete elements, strengthening of already-existing concrete structures by thin textile-reinforced concrete layers is possible. This type of strengthening noticeably increases both the ultimate loadbearing capacity and serviceability of reinforced concrete structures. This aspect is shown in the present paper using experimental results of TRC-strengthened slabs.
