Abstract:

Ferrocement has been evolved as a better alternative for reinforced cement concrete in many constructions. Ferrocement is preferred for the construction of elements carrying smaller loads. In Ferrocement, steel wire mesh is used as reinforcement material. Corrosion is one of the main disadvantages of steel wire mesh. While considering the durability aspects, the steel wire mesh is needed to be replaced with suitable mesh reinforcement. Now-a-days, Synthetic fibre reinforcements are used as an alternative for steel reinforcements. This paper studies the performance of fibre mesh reinforced slabs. Slabs of 1m x 1m x 0.05m size with different meshes were casted and tested in laboratory. Breaking load capacity was studied in order to compare the strength of slabs as well as to find the effect of different aperture size.
