Title: Tensile Tests of Ferrocement
Author(s): Antoine E . Naaman and Surendra P. Shah
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 693-698
Keywords: Composite materials, crack width and spacing,
cracking (fracturing), ferrocrete, modulus of
elasticity, reinforced concrete, research,
strength, wire mesh
Abstract:Study to better understand ferrocrete as an engineering material and predict its design properties. Studied effect of types, sizes, volume of wire mesh on ferrocrete in uniaxial tension; observed that ultimate strength of ferro-crete is that of mesh, and found that modulus of elasticity can be predicted from those of mortar and mesh.
