Tensile Behavior of Textile: Influence of Multilayer Reinforcement
The interest in the use of textile fabrics as reinforcement for cement based composite materials has been increasing in the last few years. Textile cementitious composites show improved tensile performances; as a matter of fact in addiction to a considerable peak strength, these composites show a strain hardening behavior even when the reinforcing yarns have a low modulus of elasticity. This was explained by the enhancement in bonding due to the mechanical anchoring provided by the non-linear geometry of the individual yarn within the fabric.
The paper investigates the tensile behavior of textile reinforced mortar as influenced by different geometrical reinforcement ratio in prismatic specimens. In all the experimental tests the load direction will be parallel to the fabric warp. Three different geometrical reinforcement ratio were investigated in order to evaluate their effectiveness and their influence both on tensile strength and on crack pattern.
