The influences of the mesh sizes, the surface treatment and cover thickness of the textile on anti-crack and bearing capacity of the competent were investigated. Additionally, to prevent the splitting of the concrete, hanging U-shaped hook upon textiles was also experimentally studied. The experiment results indicate that sticking sand on epoxy resin-impregnated textile and reduced cover thickness are helpful to improve the mechanical performance of the component; the textile with 10mm×10mm mesh size is superior than that with 20mm×20mm mesh size regardless of in the respect of enhancing the bearing capacity of the TRC or in the respect of controlling matrix cracking; the novel method of adding U-shape iron hook not only can improve the bonding performance between the textile and the concrete, but also can enhance the shearing capacity of the concrete.
