Abstract: Different yarn and textile structures are examined within the Collaborative Research Center on textile reinforced concrete in Aachen. The scope of the latest research work is to examine the influence of different machine settings on the mechanical performance. These examinations were done for both, yarn and textile structures. Within the yarn structures cabled yarns were examined. The winding yarns are made of polyamide, they are not counted as reinforcing material. The amount of turns per meter is varied. The production of these yarn structures is shown in the presentation. Within the examinations the different yarn structures were tested in a tensile test of the dry material. In addition, the influence of a second winding was examined.
During the production process of the textile structures, the stitching length as well as the binding type were varied. Due to the different stitching lengths the shape of the yarn cross-section changes which leads to a different mechanical behavior. Different textile structures are shown in the presentation. In the examinations, the textile structures were embedded in concrete and a tensile test was performed.
The aim of both examinations is to determine machine settings which create the best performance of the yarn or textile structure.
