Abstract: This paper investigates the tensile behaviour of Textile Reinforced Mortar characterized by cement matrix and A/R glass fabrics when exposed to freezing and thawing cycles. Some tensile tests on prismatic specimens after the exposure to different number of freezing and thawing cycles will be considered in this work. The influence of this severe environmental condition on both ductility and strength of the composite is investigated. In all the experimental tests the load direction will be parallel to the fabric warp.
