Abstract:
This is an introductory paper to the symposium and should be considered in conjunction with papers by Batson et al., and Romualdi presented in this volume. An attempt is made to review briefly the historical background and to create the stage for the symposium that ferrocement is a useful engineering material rather than a boat-build-ing material.
