Material Behavior and Mechanism of Textile-Reinforced Composites

About this Research Topic

Textile-reinforced composite is a fiber reinforced inorganic polymer (FRIP) composite system. It has two outstanding features. One improves the anticorrosion aspect of traditional reinforcement. Since textile is a fabric mesh made of fibers with or without resin, it overcomes the shortcoming of steel wire mesh as a reinforcer in corrosive environments. The other feature is improved durability of the matrix for fabric materials in fire or UV radiation, and exposure to moisture or alternate dry/wet cycling environments.

There is also enormous potential for textile-reinforced composites in the field of structural applications. The composite has its advantages in masonry structural retrofitting and shear retrofitting in reinforced concrete structural members, particularly in terms of fire- and corrosion-resistance and a low price/performance ratio. Recently, trends in new construction focus on the façade component or shell structural member.

The composite material is still considered new compared to traditional materials. Further research on the material mechanism and performance in structural applications, from the micro to macroscopic scale, is essential. This Research Topic welcomes articles on all aspects of textile-reinforced composites including experimental and analytical studies. Themes of interest include:

• Interaction between textile reinforcement and matrix
• Mechanical performance of textile-reinforced composites subject to static and dynamic loads
• Modeling methods for textile-reinforced composites in the micro or macro scale, including multi-scale analysis
• Durability of textile-reinforced composites
• Advanced textile-reinforced composites
• Behavior and design of textile-reinforced composites used in structural retrofitting or new structural constructions


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
