Concrete elements are basic things in our life in our house building, roads, ports, bridges and other civil engineering field applications. But concrete can be exposed to many problems that need to be fixed. These problems such as thickness, heavy weight, cracking and thermal bridges.. Reinforcing of Concrete elements became important according to its low resistance, different uses, or due to design or implementation errors. Also, concrete need repairing as different environment affect its’ loading. Textile has a huge role in building structure offering good properties such as light weight, strength and also gives thermal and acoustic insulation and sunlight, chemical and pollution resistance to solve those problems as textile reinforced concrete (TRC) for reinforcing and repairing mortars and concrete. Textiles were used with different materials such as fiber glass. Carbon fibers, basalt, steel etc. Also, different constructions and different techniques were used such as woven, knitted, bonded and non-woven. This paper reviews some of TRC techniques, constructions and materials for used grides to solve problems which facing concrete for reinforcing or repairing.
