Abstract: Experimental investigations with textile reinforced concrete (TRC) samples show very complex damage and failure mechanisms on different scales. Therefore, descriptions on the micro-, meso- and macro-scale are introduced as parts of a hierarchical material model of textile reinforced concrete. This paper gives a survey on micro-mechanical models, like the adhesive cross linkage model or the plug model. The results from the micro-scale are used in mesoscopic models to simulate engineered textile structures embedded in the cementitious matrix. Therefore, cell methods are used. By means of homogenisation techniques the heterogeneous composite TRC is treated homogeneously on the macro-scale. Based on this hierarchical material and the bridging between the different scales, multi-scale finite element methods (MS-FEM) of a sequential and integrated type are discussed.
