SANDWICH TYPE PRECAST PRESTRESSED FERROCEMENT PANELS FOR DOUBLY-CURVED SHIP HULLS

The initial stages of development work on sandwich type precast prestressed ferrocement panels are described, with the objective of providing a cost-effective method for constructing ship hulls and other large shell structures. These panels are designed to be accurately assembled, jointed, and stressed on site. Six trial panels were cast and tested under flexural, shear, and impact loads. The structural response of the panels is described, and the next stages of development are discussed.
