Abstract: The reliability of ferrocement slabs subjected to cyclic thermal-shock loading induced by raindrops during service is investigated. The data are obtained experimentally by subjecting specimens to heating and wetting cycles and monitoring the residual first-crack strength at different periods. The imposed thermal-shock loads simulate actual service conditions and are estimated by monitoring the temperature of typical roofing slabs just before the commencement of rain over a period of time. The mean deterioration in strength obtained after correcting for curing effects due to ageing and temperature, as well as the uncertainty present, are used to assess the reliability of slabs having residual first-crack strengths above some prescribed values at different periods. The results indicate that ferrocement slabs posses good flexural resistance with respect to the cyclic loadings studied and are suitable for use as roofing elements. © 1992 RILEM.
