Investigation of the bond properties between textile reinforced concrete and extruded polystyrene foam

Book Contribution - Book Chapter Conference Contribution

This paper studies the bond quality among Textile Reinforced Concrete and Extruded Polystyrene
Foam, which can constitute the basic materials for construction of load-bearing elements, such as
insulating sandwich panels. The bond properties were investigated experimentally and were monitored
by Digital Image Correlation and Acoustic Emission. The results showed good bonding conditions
on the tested specimens with a large load-displacement plateau. The activated area was approximated
to 200 mm regardless the specimen size. Additionally, there was a good agreement between
the results obtained by the two monitoring techniques, which means that the proposed set-up is promising
for similar studies.
