BEHAVIOUR OF FIBROUS-COMPOSITES UNDER IMPACT AND BLAST LOADING. FIBRE REINFORCED CEMENTS AND CONCRETES: RECENT DEVELOPMENTS. PROCEEDINGS OF AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WALES, COLLEGE OF CARDIFF, SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING, UNITED KINGDOM, SEPTEMBER 18-20, 1989

Fibrous-composites, made up of plain cement mortar matrix, layers of wire mesh and short discrete fibres, have been experimentally subjected to impact and blast loading. The loading was applied to the specimens using specially designed and fabricated test equipment. Comparative damage assessment has been quantified by the leakage rate of water at a constant head, allowed through the damaged area. The study revealed the superior impact and blast resistance of fibrous-ferrocement vis-a-vis ferrocement.(A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 827953.
