Abstract: Textile reinforced concrete (TRC) components exhibit multiple cracking leading to strain hardening behavior under uniaxial tension. In this paper, the method for characterization of the tensile response of TRC capturing the interaction between the matrix cracking and local bond behavior between the matrix and textile fabrics is presented. By combining advanced experimental and modelling approaches the tensile response of TRC specimens can be re-produced in terms of elementary damage mechanisms in the heterogeneous material structure. In particular, the data obtained by digital image correlation technique is used for automated detection of crack initiations in the tested zone of the specimen during the load-ing. The data describing the history of cracking including the quantitative characteristics (positions and crack widths) serve as an input for the numerical simulation of the fragmentation process using a multi-scale stochastic cracking model. The micro-scale effects occur-ring during the debonding process in the vicinity of a crack are described using the representative crack bridge model. As a result, the crack bridge behavior is calibrated in the con-figuration relevant for the behavior of structural components. Validation of the model has been performed by comparing the model prediction with test results obtained for specimens with modified reinforcement ratio.
