Abstract:Panels were made of concrete and glass rovings for use as integral (or permanent) formwork for reinforced concrete. Extensive testing has been carried out in order to check bending strength, durability, composite action, and fire resistance of the panels either in the stage of the construction process or after completion of the structure. The test results are described and discussed. The final design of the formwork panel is presented.
