Abstract

Most developing countries are faced with problems of adject poverty, low standards of living, environmental degradation and housing shortage. Ferrocement technology has been established as environmentally friendly low cost technology. Ferrocement is a type of thin wall reinforced concrete construction where hydraulic cement is reinforced with layers of continuous and relatively small diameter mesh. This paper focuses on the materials, advantages, mechanical properties, practical design parameters, recommendations, research and development in ferrocement. The positive effects exerted by silica fume and fly ash on properties of Portland cement mortar have been emphasized.
