Experimental Study of Compressive Strength of Bitumen Ferrocement

Mitali Patil | Khandekar S.D. | Patil J.R

Abstract: Ferrocement is new construction technique which is quite popular throughout the world. Ferrocement consists of cement mortar and reinforcement in the form of wire mesh. Bitumen ferrocement is modified type of ferrocrete in which wire mesh is covered with bitumen and it uses as reinforcement. The investigation is proposed on effect of reinforcement orientation on compressive strength of ferrocement. This investigation highlights on eleven different combinations of orientations and layers of square wire mesh reinforcement and its effect on compressive strength of ferrocement. The ferrocement cubes casted with single and double layers of reinforcement placed in transverse, vertical and diagonal plane. Some cubes casted with bitumen ferrocement. The conclusion for this investigation shows vertical orientation offers more compressive strength than horizontal orientation. Also the strength offer by bitumen ferrocement will be comparing with ferrocement cubes. The application of bitumen ferrocement is swimming pool. Due to use of bitumen ferrocement material becomes watertight. Also it can be used for construction of road pavement, construction of small arch bandharas and retaining walls.
