Abstract: In this paper methods of repair and strengthening of reinforced concrete beams using ferrocement laminates attached onto the surface of the beams are reviewed. Investigation into the transfer of forces across the concrete/ferrocement interface, the effects of the level of damage sustained by the original beams prior to repair, and the results of repeated loading on the performance of the strengthened beams are discussed. The results show that ferrocement is a viable alternative strengthening component for the rehabilitation of reinforced concrete structures. © 1998 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
