Details of an exptl. investigation on the influence of skeletal steel on the shear strength of ferrocement are presented. Tests were conducted on 66 simply supported rectangular ferrocement specimens under 4-point loading. Variables of the study were the vol. fraction of skeletal bars (pb) and shear span-to-depth ratio (a/h). Two types of shear cracking and failure, namely, those due to flexure-shear and web-shear were noticed. Test results indicate that the shear strengths of ferrocement at flexure-shear and web-shear cracking increase with a decrease in a/h and increase in pb. The shear stress at which the web-shear crack occurred was higher than the shear stress at which the flexure-shear crack occurred. Best-fit equations and characteristic strength equations are proposed for shear strength of ferrocement in flexure-shear cracking and web-shear cracking
