Abstract: The innovative composite material Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC) takes into account the advantages of high-strength fine-grained concretes and open-meshed textile reinforcements, which are mainly made of alkali-resistant glass (AR-glass) or carbon fibers.
Due to the non-corrosive behavior of the textiles, the required concrete covers can be minimized resulting in filigree and lightweight concrete structures with minimum thicknesses of 15 mm. This paper presents selected TRC applications in the field of façade- and bridge construction which have been realized within the last three years.
