Abstract
Ferrocement is the construction material consisting of wire meshes and cement mortar application of Ferrocement in constructions vast due to the low self-weight, lack of skilled workers, etc. Retrofitting is the process of increasing the seismic resistance of damaged or weak structure by appropriate techniques. Retrofitting of earthquake damaged structure is done by repairing and strengthening the damaged portions of the structure and making it reusable. Ferrocement used as retrofitting due to their easy availability, economy, durability and their property of being cast to any shape without needing significant formwork. In present work the square welded wire mesh (1.16mm diameter and grid 15mm×15mm) is use in the specimens to increase the compressive strength and providing 2-3 layers of ferrocement jacketing. We were cast the mortar cube and square welded wire mesh used in mortar cube. We tested the under compressive loading and got a result that compressive strength of square welded wire mesh mortar cube higher than the mortar cube.

Key-Words / Index Term
Ferrocement, Retrofitting, Seismic resistance, Square welded wire mesh, Compressive Load.
