Abstract:A comprehensive experimental program based on the statistical concepts of fractional factorial design was conducted to investigate the effects of various mix variables on the physical properties of wood fiber reinforced cement composites. The variables investigated were fiber type, fiber content, pozzolanic admixture, and silica sand content. The composites were produced through slurry-dewatering, and effect of the preceding variables on the following properties were studied: specific gravity, water absorption, and moisture movement.
