A fundamental investigation of textile reinforced cementitious composites tensile response by Acoustic Emission Vrije Universiteit Brussel
The fracture processes on coupons of glass-fibre textile reinforced cementitious (TRC)matrix composites under tension are revealed using acoustic emission monitoring (AE)method. The fundamental study, based on acoustic signals magnitude, shape and frequency content, discloses the presence of early mortar micro-cracking and assesses the nature of multi-scale damage developed as the ultimate matrix strength is reached. At post-cracking stage, ...

Validation of a Numerical Bending Model for Sandwich Beams with Textile-Reinforced Cement Faces by Means of Digital Image Correlation Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Sandwich panels with textile-reinforced cement (TRC) faces merge both structural and insulating performance into one lightweight construction element. To design with sandwich panels, predictive numerical models need to be thoroughly validated, in order to use them with high confidence and reliability. Numerical bending models established in literature have been validated by means of local displacement measurements, but are missing a full ...

A layered-wise, composite modelling approach for fibre textile reinforced cementitious composites Vrije Universiteit Brussel
Textile Reinforced Cements (TRCs) offer an adequate alternative to more conventional building systems in construction due to their tunable and lightweight geometries. TRCs are currently either modelled by means of a discrete approach, where the textiles and the matrix are modelled separately, or by means of a smeared approach that averages the material's mechanical response over the cross-section. The research presented in this paper proposes ...
Investigation of the bond properties between textile reinforced concrete and extruded polystyrene foam Vrije Universiteit Brussel
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 ...
