Abstract: This paper presents preliminary results of an experimental investigation on the strength, deformation and fracture behavior of textile reinforced concrete (TRC) subjected to high-rate tensile loading. Fine-grained concrete reinforced with textile made of glass fiber has been tested both at quasi-static and dynamic rates using a servo-hydraulic testing machine.
Furthermore, the effect of the addition of short fibers on the dynamic response of TRC has been investigated. A state-of-the-art high speed phantom camera has been used to take images from the specimens during the test. The images have been evaluated for calculating the crack spacing as well as for analyzing the failure behavior and cracking pattern.
