Development of Biocomposite Concrete Panels for Low-Cost Housing

R. Saravanan

Abstract


This study focused on the possibility of developing biocomposite concrete panels with coir fibers to be used as a low-cost construction alternative. Coir fibers were used to completely replace steel reinforcement and natural resin was the binding material. Two types of biocomposite panels with single and double layers of woven coir fiber were developed. The performance of the biocomposite for both wall and slab panels was evaluated under flexural and axial-compression loadings.
