Abstract

An experimental and analytical investigation on ferrocement sandwich panels under bending and in-plane compression was conducted using specimen cross-sections similar to the ones adopted for the construction of a housing module. The scope of this paper is to show that: load-deflection diagrams in bending can be modeled using non-linear conventionally reinforced concrete analysis developed with the use of a micro-computer; in-plane compression capacity can be predicted using the tangent modulus formula for buckling when facings are treated as columns; the use of gypsum by-product as one of the matrix components improves mortar penetration and finishability without modifying the typical ferrocement behavior.
