Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC) materials have been addressed several times at the ACI conventions in the past 14 years. This area has been led by several RILEM Committees, fib, and ACI Committee 549. The first TRC committee was formed in July 2002, the RILEM TC 201-TRC (Textile Reinforced Concrete). The work of this committee was followed by Technical Committee 232-TDT addressing Test methods and design of textile reinforced concrete, developing recommendations of test methods and design of the composites. ACI has had a very strong presence in the international development of these materials. Various research groups have developed a wealth of recent information pertaining the methodologies, properties, and areas of applications for fabric reinforced cement-based materials. The theoretical framework will address aspects of multi-scale modeling, analytical tools to predict and design components for tensile, flexural, and shear loading of TRC composite systems. these sessions would be of interest to researchers, structural engineers and concrete repair professionals.
