dc.description.abstractTextile Ceramic Technology (TCT) is a system composed of ceramic units installed in a grid of steel wires. TCT application as a curtain wall which allows ventilation is expected to be an inexpensive, aesthetic and sustainable solution. In order to use TCT as a curtain wall, experimental research about the mechanical response of hanged TCT panels is required. The main aim of this paper is to present the results of this experimental work. Different loading conditions corresponding to gravity and wind forces have been applied on typical TCT panels and the results point out that TCT is sufficiently mechanically competent to be used as a curtain wall. The application range and limitations are summarised. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
