Abstract: Success of ferrocement as a building material depends on strength and durability under any environmental conditions. This paper reports the results of an investigation into the effects of drying and wetting cycles using both fresh water and sea water, and of curing in 6% NaCl solution on the strength and stiffness of ferrocement. Within the duration of durability tests, one thousand cycles of drying and wetting, and nine weeks of curing in NaCl solution, the ferrocement composite retained its stiffness and ultimate strength. The first-crack strength of ferrocement showed improvements during the tests due to the maturity gain for the mortar component. Furthemore, ferrocement specimens subjected to the first-crack load have not suffered any loss in the ultimate strength due to the above exposure conditions.
