Ferro-Cement Boxes, Concrete


The thesis presents the study on behavior and strength of concrete confined by Ferro-cement boxes under compression. A total of 24 prism specimens, which includes 6 plain concrete specimens were prepared and concentrically loaded in compression to failure. Six specimen were reinforced with Ferro-cement boxes. Another six specimens were reinforced with Ferro-cement boxes provided with longitudinal bars and hoop bars. A new set of six specimens were reinforced with longitudinal bars and hoop bars only. Since only core concrete was loaded, the height of Ferro-cement boxes was prepared shorter than core concrete to obtain gaps at both ends of specimens. After testing, the results indicate that Ferro- cement boxes offer significant enhancement in stiffness and strength.
