Abstract:This guide supplements two earlier publications (ACI 549R-82, State-of-the-Art Report on Ferrocement, and SP-61, Ferrocement--Materials and Applications). It provides technical information on materials and material selection, design criteria and approaches, construction methods, maintenance and repair procedures, and testing. The objectives are to promote more effective use of ferrocement in terrestrial structures, provide architects and engineers with the necessary tools to specify and use ferrocement, and provide owners of their representatives with a reference document to check the acceptability of a ferrocement alternative in a given application.
