Abstract: The paper briefly presents the existing theories of fibre cement composites based on spacing and composite material concepts. The mathematical equations giving the tensile and the flexural strength are restated using a common set of notations. These equations are used to predict the first crack and ultimate stresses in tension and flexure, and compared with experimental values. Based on the comparison, a set of equations are identified and a design method of fibre cement composite is proposed. © 1981.
