    Abstract

    Textile reinforced mortars (TRM), also known in the international literature as textile reinforced concrete (TRC) or fabric reinforced cementitious matrix (FRCM) materials, have been widely studied during the last two decades as they constitute a promising alternative to the fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) retrofitting solution for strengthening of reinforced concrete members. This paper presents a state-of-the-art review on the strengthening of concrete structures with TRM. First, the tensile and bond behavior of TRM is described. Next, an overview of studies on the use of TRM for flexural, shear, confinement, and seismic retrofitting of concrete or RC members is included, and the key parameters are investigated.
