Publication:

Symposium Papers

Volume:

Abstract:

A review of the basic characteristics of ferrocement, as it is distinguished from conventionally reinforced concrete or fiber reinforced concrete, is made. Problems of definition and performance are discussed in light of needed design criteria and future research needs are outlined.

Abstract:

This paper reports about the development and testing of ferrocement corrugated sheets. The results obtained warrant the following deductions. The sheets can be cast with the minimum of equipment and supervision. While the strength of the ferrocement sheet tested is half that of asbestos sheets, the strength to cost ratio approaches the same value. Unlike asbestos sheets, ferrocement sheets exhibit very large deflections before failure. Special tools are required for cutting and drilling holes in ferrocement sheets.

Abstract:

The references listed in the following pages cover a good selection of research papers and applications of ferrocement. Being the first volume of its kind, a wide selection of papers is made to help the interested engineer identify his needs. . .Many references were provided from the bibliograpgy of International Ferrocement Information Center (IFIC), Bangkok, and are gratefully acknowledged.

Abstract:

Although some practical specifications are available for the construction of ferrocement boats, to the best of the author's knowledge no technical specifications for the construction of ferro-cement structures have yet been published. Specifications are essential if the use of ferrocement is to become widely accepted and if the gap between the "try and see what happens" approach and advanced research results is to be reduced. Based on 1) tests at the University of Illinois at Chicago Circle of model pressurized ferrocement water tanks where cracking and leakage characteristics were studied, 2) the experience in ferrocement and knowledge of its mechanical behavior and 3) an extensive survey of ferrocement related literature where some forms of specifications or recommendations were found and analyzed, the author has developed tentative recommendations for the construction of ferrocement water tanks. Although these recommendations are written specifically for water tanks, they may be used either as a model for other types of ferro-cement structures or as part of a more general and complete specification document on ferrocement.
