Title: Flexural Behavior of Fibro-Ferrocrete One-Way Slabs
Author(s): R. P. Clarke and A. K. Sharma

Abstract:Fibro-ferrocrete can be visualized as a new material that judiciously combines reinforced concrete, ferrocement, and fiber reinforced concrete to give a strong and effective structural material. This material can be fabricated readily into beams and flat plate elements that are structurally efficient and strong. Tests of six fibro-ferrocrete one-way slabs subjected to flexural loadings are reported. The factors affecting the strength of such slabs are examined. A theory is presented to determine the flexural strength of fibro-ferrocrete one-way slabs. The ultimate strengths obtained from five of the six tests exceed the calculated values derived from the proposed theory, usually by 20 to 30 percent.
