  Ferrocement is defined as reinforced mortar with multiple layers of steel mesh encapsulated in mortar matrix. It is widely used for housing units, flat or corrugated roofing sheets as well as other structural components. Ferrocement seems to be an alternative for roofing elements supporting photovoltaic cells. Mortar is usually injected and therefore, fluidity of it is the important criteria for the design of the mortar mixture apart from the required strength.
