Direct stress, Geometry, Ferrocement, Retaining wall.
Due to rapid development of Construction industry in the world. Concrete and reinforcements are popular construction materials used to get creation of conceptualization due to mouldability. Sometimes Heavy self-weight is disadvantage. Prestressed and Ferrocement are the alternatives having advantages. Ferrocement can be replace all conventional construction materials like RCC, bricks, timber, steel etc. and construction become eco-friendly. In this research work retaining wall study is carried out by comparing ferrocement retaining wall with RCC conventional retaining wall with analytical exercise with variation of thickness and geometry has been discussed in detail. Analytical exercise done with the help of FEM based ANSYS.17.0 software. Results of the analytical study shows use of ferrocement with minimum thickness can sustain stresses with permissible deflection.
