Textile Reinforced Concrete (TRC) for Integrated Formworks

This paper presents the use of textile reinforced concrete (TRC) for producing integrated formwork element for use in construction. The TRC integrated formwork elements are significantly lighter compared to the normal precast elements owing to their relatively smaller wall thickness of typically around 10 mm. The cross-section of TRC integrated formwork element can be chosen as dictated by specific application and the composites can be designed to have a high load-bearing capacity. The fresh concrete is protected against moisture loss by the integrated formwork elements that remain in place during actual construction.
