Abstract: Textile reinforced concrete is known for having a load-bearing behavior which is very sensitive to bond properties of the fabric reinforcement. Since there is a lack of information on the stress-strain behavior under biaxial loading a study has been started to conduct the behavior under tension-tension loading. The paper discusses the test setup used for this study. Obtaining representative stress-strain curves may be difficult for two reasons. Firstly, additional layers of reinforcement in the load introduction area and secondly, the specimen geometry necessary for load introduction leads to an increased stiffness outside the central measuring area. Different measures ensure that this disturbing effect has negligible impact on the strain distribution within the centrally located measuring area. Through comparing with uniaxial reference tests, it has been proved that representative stress-strain curves under biaxial loading can be obtained. On this basis, a detailed analysis of the load-bearing behavior of textile reinforced concrete is possible.
