Many buildings are already realized with elements made of textile reinforced concrete. This innovative composite material offers numerous advantages, such as low concrete covers and a good corrosion resistance. Many aspects of textile reinforced concrete constructions have mostly been investigated, for example the bending and bond behavior of textile reinforced concrete members. However, there are still largely unknown fields of research such as the load case "concentrated load" in facade panels which are caused, for example, by the suspension of the panels. So far, there is no general design approach for this case and a gap in knowledge was identified. Due to an increasing application of textile reinforced concrete elements, the design of thin panels under concentrated load is of great importance.
