Abstract

Ferrocement is a type of reinforced concrete in which the matrix is portland cement mortar and the reinforcement consists primarily of layers of steel wire mesh. To facilitate rational design in this relatively new material, influence of matrix composition and wire mesh properties on static and dynamic strengths of ferro-cement specimens were studied. Results suggest that ferro-cement may be a potential material for construction of thin shells such as for boat hulls, of containers for transportation of LNG, and of deep submersibles.
