Textile reinforced non-structural concrete member has been commonplace in last decade in such application such as façade. The mutli-advantages of textile reinforcement have attracted the researchers to investigate applying this material in the role of a main reinforcement. Because of this, the cover thickness could be theoretically reduced due to the textile resistance to the corrosion. However, there are some impediments need to be studied. The interaction between the matrix and textile reinforcement which is represented by the bond efficiency factor of textile is one of the areas that needs to be fully understood. The impact of bond on the behaviour of textile reinforced concrete beams is notable. Therefore, this study investigated experimentally the effect of using different textile reinforcement geometries on the bond efficiency factor. Ten beams reinforced by different textile geometries were investigated. Four bending test was carried out. The results show that the average bond efficiency factor is 0.52 of uni-axial carbon textile reinforced concrete beam.
