Abstract: ▪ The datasheet focus on a new strengthening technology of damaged reinforced concrete (RC) structures. Thereby, the new composite material textile reinforced concrete (TRC) is applied on the surface of the damaged RC structure. TRC consists of fine grained concrete and multi-axial warp knitted fabrics, so called textiles.
▪ In order to evaluate the structural behaviour and the safety of the damaged structure before and after strengthening, nonlinear earthquake analysis under consideration of the uncertainty is provided. Thereby, the uncertainty of material parameters of RC and TRC as well as of the earthquake excitation is considered.
