Abstract

Ferro-cement is made up of combination of cement mortar and multiple layers mesh which is closely spaced. It is widely used due to its advantage from its some of behaviour such as mechanical properties and impact strength. The main aim of this project is to investigate the strength of characteristics of Ferro-cement with and without using fiber. Also compare the strength of Ferro-cement with using three different types of fiber such as, polypropylene, polyester and synthetic fibers. Mechanical test were performed to check the effect of fibers on improving compressive and flexural/bending strength in Ferro-cement. Since fiber is act as secondary reinforcement, it will prevent Ferro-cement from micro cracking and propagation crack growth and increases the strength.
