Desayi, Prakash and Nandakumar, N (1993) Influence of skeletal steel on the shear strength of ferrocement. In: International Symposium Innovative World Concr, 1993, pp. 151-159.Full text not available from this repository.
Details of an exptl. investigation on the influence of skeletal steel on the shear strength of ferrocement are presented. Tests were conducted on 66 simply supported rectangular ferrocement specimens under 4-point loading. Variables of the study were the vol. fraction of skeletal bars (pb) and shear span-to-depth ratio (a/h). Two types of shear cracking and failure, namely, those due to flexure-shear and web-shear were noticed. Test results indicate that the shear strengths of ferrocement at flexure-shear and web-shear cracking increase with a decrease in a/h and increase in pb. The shear stress at which the web-shear crack occurred was higher than the shear stress at which the flexure-shear crack occurred. Best-fit equations and characteristic strength equations are proposed for shear strength of ferrocement in flexure-shear cracking and web-shear cracking
