Nowadays thin-walled load bearing structures can be realised using textile reinforced concrete. The required tensile strength is achieved by embedding several layers of textile. By means of the laminating technique the number of textile layers that can be included into the concrete could be increased. To further increase serviceability and load bearing capacity and to optimise the crack development, fine grained concrete mixes with short fibres can be used. Within the scope of this study, the influence of short fibres made of steel, glass, carbon and synthetics on the stress-strain curve of tensile specimens was investigated. Therefore examinations of concrete specimens with solely textile layers and with solely short fibres as well as with combinations of both were carried out. The paper presents the results of these examinations and describes the effect of short fibres on strength, crack development and ductility of textile reinforced concrete.
