Abstract

Textile reinforced concrete (TRC) is a recently developed type of glass fibre reinforced concrete. The aim of this paper is to show the potential of TRC for low-speed impact. Therefore, series of impacted TRC laminates are subjected to several post-impact analysis techniques: visual interpretation of cracks, digital image correlation and analysis of post-impact stress strain curves. These post-impact tests provide valuable information on the damage mechanisms that occur during impact and on their effect on the remaining load-bearing capacity.
