For achieving higher values of specific surface, No. of Layers of meshes needs to be increased. Many a time, it becomes difficult to force mortar in this layer. The fine diameter wires, with smaller openings pose more problems. This is over come by using different types of fibers to improve the specific surface of the reinforcement. As the fiber take care of cracking of mortar, bigger diameter wire meshes with larger opening can be used & which simplify the penetration of mortar in the meshes. This results in a high strength material for which flexural properties can be designed and predicted with much accuracy. It also offers higher energy absorption capacity and impact resistance to ferrocrete. Behavior of such Hybrid Ferro Fiber Reinforced Concrete is studied in this paper which includes tensile test.
