Numerical Simulation of Cohesion Influence of Textile Reinforcement on Bending Performance of Plates Prepared from High Performance Concrete (HPC)


Article Preview

Demand for very thin concrete elements, which can’t be reinforced with usually used steel reinforcement, gave rise to a new type of non-traditional reinforcement with technical textiles in matrix of epoxy resin. This type of reinforcement together with concrete is called textile reinforced concrete (TRC). Composite reinforcement is very chemically resistant, so the concrete cover is proposed to regard the durability. It allows a significant saving of concrete and design of thinner elements. For TRC structures is used high performance concrete (HPC) with its fine grained structure and high compressive strength. Textile reinforcement and TRC in general are developed at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and the Klokner Institute, CTU in Prague.
