Abstract: The development of TRC is based on the fundamentals of glass filament reinforced concrete with short filaments. The calculation of elements and structures demands detailed knowledge of the load-bearing behaviour of the composite material. Indeed this resembles that of steel reinforced concrete, however, it is influenced more by the bond of the textile reinforcement with the fine concrete. Therefore, near the material behaviour the cracking behaviour, the load-bearing capacity, the deformation behaviour and the durability are examined. The calculation models currently being developed will lead to a better understanding of the failure mechanisms of TRC-structures. Based on these models, design rules and safety concepts can be set up in the future.
