The main objective of this research is to investigate the possibility of using ferrocement concrete in constructing water supply pipe. The current work presents the comparison between the performance of ferrocement pipe and reinforcement concrete pipe under static load as starting step to study the performance of this type of pipe under impact load. The current paper presents an experimental models of ferrocement and concrete water pipes and their numerical models using the finite element method. Finite element models were developed to simulate the behavior of the pipes through nonlinear response and up to failure, using the ANSYS Package. Additionally, the comparison between the theoretical and experimental models results is presented and discussed.

 

Key words: Ferrocment, water pipe, nonlinear analysis, finite element analysis.
