Abstract
Ferrocement is a versatile material of construction, which possesses unique structural properties. It is a composite formed with closely knit wire mesh tightly wound round skeletal steel & impregnated with rich cement mortar. Welded mesh, mild steel angles or bars are used for forming skeleton, while chicken mesh, square mesh or expanded metal are used as mesh reinforcement. Mortar mix may be (1:1.5) to (1:4) by volume. With ferrocement it is possible to fabricate a variety of structural elements, may be used in foundations, walls, floors, roofs, shells etc. they are thin walled, light weight, durable and have high degree of impermeability. It combines the properties of thin sections & high strength of steel, mouldability of concrete, light weight& ease of working of timber, high tensile strength capacity of pre-stressed concrete and crack control of fiber reinforced concrete. Ferrocement can replace all these materials. In addition it needs no formwork or shuttering for casting. Ferrocement has applications in all fields of civil construction, including water and & soil retaining structures, building components, space structures of large size, bridges, domes, dams, boats, conduits, bunkers, silos, treatment plants for water & sewage & chimneys.
