Abstract : The report studies ferro-cement panels reinforced with plain steel woven wire mesh and subjected to flexural loads to determine the first cracking, visible cracking, and ultimate strength properties. The reinforcement variables were mesh size (which ranged from 2 x 2 to 14 x 14 wires/in.), wire diameter (which ranged from 0.011 to 0.041 inch), and percentage of steel (which ranged from 1 to 3% by area in the direction of principal stress). Control panels of unreinforced mortar and panels reinforced with chicken wire or steel rods were also tested. (Author)
