An experimental investigation analyzing the behaviour of ferrocement-confined cylindrical concrete specimens under axial compression is presented. A total of 12 cylindrical concrete specimens of three different sizes (150100 and 75mm diameters) were tested. Each type of specimens were jacketed with ferrocement having single layer of welded wire mesh. The present experimental study is also intended to investigate the size effect of concrete specimens on the confinement action of ferrocement jackets. Test results show that additional confinement by means of a ferrocement jacket can enhance the strength and deflection capabilities of cylindrical concrete specimens. It was also found that the confinement action is more effective in case of smaller cylindrical concrete specimens.
