Abstract

Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC) became a common method lately for the production of thin elements having excellent properties. These elements can be used for strengthening concrete elements by applying them on the surface of these elements. This study examined concrete beams strengthened by carbon, glass or polyethylene TRC for their behavior under static and dynamic loads. Different static and dynamic behavior was identified for the different TRC materials. Significant differences between the carbon, glass and PE were observed in the static tests but not at the dynamic ones.
