Abstract: A large percentage of the sewer network in Germany is more than 50 years old. With a rising construction age, the vulnerability to damage also increases. These deficiencies have to be repaired as soon as possible to prevent higher secondary damages. Often, the repair of such deficiencies cannot be appropriately and efficiently carried out with current common techniques. The application of textile reinforced concrete (TRC) is a valuable addition to the existing rehabilitation methods. The advantages of textile reinforced concrete are, for example, the good adaptability to many forms, the fine crack pattern and the high quality and density of concrete. Therefore, it can be used successfully in sewer rehabilitation. The paper describes the applicability and technical aspects of a first sewer rehabilitation project with textile reinforced concrete. Furthermore, it goes into detail to describe extensive evaluation tests on the influence of aggressive substances on the strength of the composite material.
