Natural Vegetable Fibres as Reinforcement in Cement Sheets
Some relevant physical and mechanical properties of the fibres from water reed, elephant grass, plantain and musamba are discussed. The effect of elephant grass fibres upon the strength of reinforced cement sheets and the consistence of the mortar is shown to be beneficial. © 1979, Thomas Telford Ltd. All rights reserved.
