Abstract:

Variations in the form and use of conventional ferrocement made with plain mortar are limited by the requirement for fine meshes to control concrete cracking. If fibrous mortar is used, the steel wire fibers assist in distributing cracks and use can be made of much heavier meshes woven or loomed from high tensile wire. The outcome is a high strength material for which flexural properties can be designed and predicted with some accuracy, and which offers improved energy absorption and impact loading properties.

Abstract:

A review of the basic characteristics of ferrocement, as it is distinguished from conventionally reinforced concrete or fiber reinforced concrete, is made. Problems of definition and performance are discussed in light of needed design criteria and future research needs are outlined.

Abstract:

The ferrocement applications described in this paper, developed by the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana (UAM) and Instituto Politecnico National (IPN) of Mexico City, have been used with good results in different towns and slum areas, through a self-help construction program for low cost housing. Each of these applications presents an economical and practical solution for improving the physical living standards of people in developing countries.

Abstract:

Application of ferrocement in housing is presented here using local unskilled supervised labor and available materials in parts of India. The report is based on the large housing project partially supported by World Bank. In the design of Service Modules, two alternate schemes are proposed: one, using conventional brick walls and in-site or precast concrete roofing and the second, with a prefabricated service modules using ferrocement. Cost comparison between the two approaches is also given along with details of investigation using second alternative.
