Abstract: Textile reinforced concrete (TRC) allows the production of low-size elements and offers a high effectiveness of the reinforcement by using continuous roving instead of short-chopped fibers. However, whether textiles can cooperate with concrete very well depends on the bond between them. In this paper, the mechanism of bond is analyzed, and the influences of the initial bond length of textile, the surface treatment of textile, the strength and workability of concrete as well as the level of prestressing force on bond behavior have been investigated on the base of pull-out tests. The results approve that with initial bond length increasing, the largest pullout force increases, and increasing concrete strength and improving workability of concrete matrix, epoxy resin impregnating and sand covering of textile as well as prestressing textile can obviously increase bond strength between the textile and concrete.
