The mechanical behavior of Textile Reinforced Concrete after exposure to fire is poorly investigated so far. This study investigates the tensile and flexural capacity of carbon TRC at ambient conditions and after fire exposure, focusing on the influence of the surface treatment of the textiles and the thickness of the concrete cover. The results show that polymer coatings negatively influence the fire resistance while uncoated fibers maintain their stiffness for temperatures up to 500 °C. Also, increasing the cover by 4 mm can keep the specimen unaffected for temperatures up to 300 °C.
