Abstract:

Note: A newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 549R-18.

The state-of-the-art report and ACI publication SP-61, Ferrocement — Materials and Applications, provide technical information on the mechanical properties, performance, and applications of ferrocement. The intent of this report is to promote the more effective use of ferrocement as a construction material for terrestrial structures in contrast to marine structures, where it has been so far most widely used.
