Abstract: Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC) is a new composite material consisting of non-corroding fibre meshes embedded in a fine grained concrete matrix. The textile reinforcement is a 2-D or 3-D mesh made of multifilament yarns (rovings), bundles of hundreds to thousands of single fibers. As no concrete cover is required to protect the textile fabrics against corrosion, the utilisation of TRC enables the production of thin, lightweight structural concrete components. In this paper the capability of the design and application of TRC is exemplified with a presentation of ventilated large-sized façade elements. The paper describes the development of suitable materials for the panels, the structural design, the experimental testing of the structure and the design and dimensioning of the façade elements.
