This paper provides the designer with the basic information and methods with which to design ferro-cement structures. The premise throughout is that the standard methods for analyzing reinforced concrete are applicable. A description is given of the physical behavior of ferro- cement experiencing a bending moment. The strength analysis for working loads is covered, and a method is suggested for estimating the ultimate strength. The appendices include test data, strength calculations, and comparisons of calculations with test results. Particular interest lies in marine applications, hence it is hoped that this paper will permit the rational design of ferro-cement boats.
