The effect of wire mesh confinement to compressive strength and deformability of cylindrical concrete
Abdul Kadir, Baso Mursidi
The research is intended to evaluate the effectivity of of wire mesh confinement on cylindrical concrete. Six of specimens that consist of a standard cylinder with one layer, two layers, and three layers of wire mesh. The result shows that wire mesh confinement can improve the compressive strength and greater deformation before repture. Compressive strength and deformation have also improved during an increasing of number wire mesh layer or an increasing of confinement volumetric. The maximum stress improvement range is about 1.004 – 1.42 times or 0.397% - 41.98% of strength compared to cylindrical control with no wire mesh.
