Abstract: Carbon-epoxy composite materials are of considerable interest for the reinforcement of concrete structures, but they need to be improved and have constraints, particularly in terms of cost and criteria of sustainable development. Alternatives as textile reinforced concrete (TRC) should be seriously considered as substitutes for traditional composite materials. It is in this background that this study aims to explore the feasibility and assess the mechanical performance of reinforced beams in bending. This experimental work focuses on the mechanical feasibility of such solutions by comparing them with traditional solutions such as CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer) and NSM (Near Surface Mounted) (deformation rate reinforcement, ultimate load, degradation level) on the basis of an experimental campaign based on 5 beams tested under four point bending.
