Innovative composite material textile-reinforced concrete

Slender façade elements made from textile-reinforced high-performance concrete

During the last 30 years reinforced concrete used in façade systems was more and more replaced by steel, glass or wood. Reasons for the fact are unwanted surface damages owing to concrete spalling as a consequence of corrosion of the reinforcement steel, caused by too thin concrete layers. At present, the corrosion-resistant textile-reinforced concrete boosts the renaissance of the concrete façade. The new composite material allows the construction of thin-walled structural components, characterized by their low weight and huge slenderness. It is possible to replace the 90 mm thick reinforced...
