An introduction to design for ferrocement vessels / prepared by Gordon W. Bigg, for Vessels and Engineering Division, Industrial Development Branch, Fisheries Service, Environment Canada ; G.M. Sylvester,...: En4-309/1972E-PDF

"Much has been written about the merits of Ferro-cement as a small vessel hull material. This report attempts to separate fact from fancy to enable the potential designer of Ferro-cement vessels to realistically predict the performance of a Ferro-cement hull. In addition to a basic statement on design philosophy and criteria, the report contains some of the detail associated with the design of a 53 foot fishing vessel for Newfoundland waters. This report must be considered preliminary. As new advances are made in the technology of Ferro-cement it is likely to become rapidly obsolete unless continually brought up-to-date"--Abstract, p. i.
