Realization of TRC Façades with Impregnated AR-Glass Textiles

Article Preview

In the last 30 years, façade-panels made of steel-reinforced concrete have become less attractive for architects and clients. Due to the metallic reinforcement, the insufficient concrete covers of former design code generations and hence the material-dependent corrosion, many cases of damage occurred. Using technical textiles for a new composite material, Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC), it is possible to produce concrete structures which are not vulnerable to corrosion. The presented ventilated large-sized façade elements and self-supporting sandwich panels exemplify the capability of TRC. In the paper, applied materials are characterized and the production process of tailor-made textile reinforcements as well as the load-bearing behavior of the members is described.
