Abstract: This investigation reports a feasibility study of making coconut fibre reinforced corrugated slabs for use in low cost housing particularly for developing countries. The casting technique for production of corrugated slabs is discussed. Flexural tests have been carried out on corrugated slabs to determine their strength with different volume fractions and aspect ratios of fibres. Tests to determine the thermal and acoustic properties of these slabs are also reported. The experimental results are presented and discussed. © 1984.
