Abstract

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.
