The purpose of this study is to investigate the behavior of tube-shaped TRC ductility experimentally via monotonic loading. Ar-Glass and PVA as textile materials are used in the production of composite tube parts. These parts were tested in four and six layers and in different thicknesses. As a result of the mortar thickness, textile layers play the major role in ductility and strength. As the tube thickness increases, the strength increases, but the ductility decreases. However, ductility increases as the tube thickness decreases and the energy absorption increase by making the parts more flexible. This paper analyzes how much ductile the 10 cm long tube can be under pressure and tensile forces. The use of different textile materials, different thicknesses, and different numbers of textile layers has been examined. According to the test results, it is concluded that cylindrical tube shaped units produced by using PVA fabric material is more ductile than units produced by using Ar-Glass fabric material. Also, with the wall or slab elements or pipeline obtained by using these units, the structure system can be strengthened against earthquake loads.
