MATERIAL DEVELOPMENT, DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND EVALUATION OF A FERROCEMENT PLANING BOAT
A 24 foot ferrocement planing boat has been designed, constructed and evaluated. Laboratory tests indicate that the all mesh, ungalvanized reinforcement used in the boat's ferrocement composite is superior to the more commonly used mesh and rod variety. The more important strength and elastic properties of ferrocement, from the point of view of boat design, are adequately, analytically predictable. The methods and criteria used in the design-analysis of the boat are borne out by trials and evaluation.
