Effect Of Wire Mesh Orientation On Strength Of Beams Retrofitted Using Ferrocement Jackets

Various retrofitting techniques are used in field and out of all plate bonding technique is considered as the best. In this technique, the plates of different materials viz CFRP, GFRP, ferrocement

Repairing reinforced concrete beams by ferrocement

This paper presents a proposed method for repairing reinforced concrete beams using ferrocement laminates as a viable alternative to steel plates which are directly glued to the cracked tension face


Although the ultimate flexural capacity of ferrocement beams has been successfully predicted, few attempts have been made to predict deflections and crack widths under loading. Experiments were
