Effect of Mesh Openings with Hybrid (Glass&Recron) Fibers on Mechanical Properties of Ferrocement Elements

Authors(2) :-Chandra Sekhar Mekala, Vinod Kompalli

The cracking stress, Ultimate moment, Shear Strength, First crack moment, First crack Load and corresponding Deflection of ferrocement elements in shear and flexure are the significant parameters in the design of structures made of ferrocement elements. In this project I am going to presents an experimental investigation on ferrocement elements uniformly reinforced by three different meshes, such as Hexagonal mesh, Diamond mesh, square mesh with Hybrid fibers of 1%, 2% and 3% of Glass fiber and Recron fibers. In this paper I would like to study the cracking Stress, Ultimate moment, shear strength and deflection properties of ferrocement elements by analyzing experimental data, the equations for the first- crack-stress, ultimate-moment and volume fraction have to made in this paper. Results obtained by the proposed equations have to be compared to those reported in the literature.For ferrocement and laminated cementitious composites, increasing number of mesh openings have to cast and bending test is going to conduct on those specimens. Ferrocement members can be used in the form of plates Such as for walling unit, marine structures etc. Such plates are subjected to shear buckling hence shear resistance capacity of plate need to be verified. Various authors have studied shear behaviour on different specimens such as box beams, panels, and plates. In the present study an attempt is made to observe behavior of ferrocement rectangular plate with various mesh patterns.
