Hi all, There was some discussion a while ago about ferrocement in machine tools on this group. I'm now looking into building a specialty machine tool, myself, using this material, but I've been almost completely unable to find engineering data for ferrocement (beams, particularly) online. I'm not "rules of thumb," preferably, but stuff like placement of reinforcement within beams, and the "hard numbers" for typical tensile strength and flexural stiffness. Are there any books that address this application? I've got Blodgett's "Design of Weldments," and "Design of Welded Structures," which are really helpful (for welded steel); are there any similar books for ferrocement design?
