Abstract: Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC) is a composite material taking advantage of the non-corrosiveness of fibre materials such as alkali-resistant glass (AR-glass) for slender and filigree structural elements. Its properties make TRC a promising construction material suitable for a wide range of structural applications. The material can be produced in plate or bended panel form or as a curved lattice structure, each of which require different production and joining techniques. Investigations aim to identify appropriate applications for TRC in the field of such bended structures. Geometric as well as structural modifications are necessary in order to improve the performance of thin-walled building components in textile-reinforced concrete. In describing selected applications, this contribution outlines the main principles of component design in relation to type of production method and connection details.
