Ferrocement in Construction Concrete Construction

Ferrocement can be considered a type of thin reinforced concrete construction in which large amounts of small-diameter wire meshes are used uniformly throughout the cross section instead of discretely placed reinforcing bars and in which Portland cement mortar is used instead of concrete. Metallic mesh is the most common type of reinforcement. Ferrocement

Ferrocement -- Boat Building and ... - Concrete Construction

Properly made, ferrocement is a high-quality material whose simple constituents and fabrication process make it usable for many construction purposes. There are five basic steps in the fabrication process: (1) the desired shape is outlined by a framing system; (2) layers of wire mesh and reinforcing bars are laid over the frame and tightly bound together; (3) mortar is plastered

What is Ferrocement? - Concrete

(Ferrocement should not be confused with ‘Ferroconcrete’, a name given to early reinforced concrete.) The construction process consists of forming the shape of the required structure with a mesh of fine reinforcement, such as chicken wire or expanded metal. Multiple layers may be used to achieve the required density of steel and the whole may be stiffened with a few
