Ferro-cement is a type of thin wall reinforced concrete commonly constructed of hydraulic cement mortar reinforced with closely spaced layers of continuous and relatively small wire mesh. The mesh may be made of metallic or other suitable materials. Ferro-cement has a very high tensile strength-to-weight ratio and superior cracking behavior in comparison to conventional reinforced concrete. The aim is to study the flexural test on ferro- cement of the suitable panel for model making. Casting of ferro-cement panel with steel fibers using proportions of 2% and 4% with cement.
