SummaryTextile Ceramic Technology (TCT) is a new material composed of ceramic units installed in a grid of steel wires. TCT application as a permeable pavement is expected to be a sustainable and aesthetic solution. Experimental research about the mechanical response of TCT was carried out. Different TCT types were tested in static, quasi-static and cyclic conditions. Experimental, numerical and applied results pointed out that TCT is sufficiently competent, from a mechanical point of view, to be used either as curtain walls for facades of buildings or as pavement for pedestrian and light traffic
