Experimental and numerical analysis of ferrocement RC composite

Sridevi Kumarasamy, A. Sudhahar, D.L. Venkateshbabu, R. Venkatasubramani

Abstract

The investigation of flexural behaviour of ferrocement elements that are used as permanent formwork in conventional reinforced concrete members is presented in the paper. Individual ferrocement panels are tested under two-point and midpoint load, and the load-deflection behaviour is then studied. The ferrocement panels are provided with shear connectors to investigate interaction between ferrocement and conventional RC members. The experimental results are compared with those obtained through finite element models using the ANSYS software, and a good correspondence of these results was established.

Keywords
ferrocement, composite action, tensile strength, ductility, shear connector
