Esthetic Enhancement of Concrete Structures Using Ferro-Cement Panels

Report No: 73-R46

Published in 1974

About the report:

An investigation of ferro-cement indicates that when used in colored panels, such panels can be used to enhance the appearance of concrete structures. The panels are simply made, light in weight, and easily attached to either old or new structures. When the panels are used as accent colors, relatively few are required, and the cost is thereby minimized. A number of possible panel arrangements are illustrated, for both bridge spans and bridge abutments.
