Abstract: The small cover of ferrocement has been the subject of discussion for many years. Follow-ing a visit to a bridge constructed in 2000 and testing of samples exposed for 20 years which showed that there was virtually no carbonation a test was set up under accelerated corrosion to investigate the different corrosion rates for mesh and traditional bar. The re-sults showed that after a month of testing the rate of corrosion for the smaller diameter mesh was reducing whereas that for the traditional steel reinforcement was increasing.
