GRC Frame Details.


This Architectural Drawing is GRC frame Details. GRC-Glass Fibre Reinforced Concrete-is a material made of a cementitious matrix composed of cement, sand, water and admixtures, in which short length glass fibres are dispersed. It has been widely used in the construction industry for non-structural elements, like façade panels. The structural advantages of GRC arise from a reduced weight and a higher impact and tensile strength as compared with concrete. To obtain a corrosion free material with high durability, the structural elements studied were designed with reinforcement of carbon tendons and stainless steel bars. Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC), also known as GFRC concrete, is a popular building material for cladding due to the versatility it offers and the fact it is around 80% lighter than pre-cast steel reinforced concrete cladding. The results show that GRC has a much lower environmental impact by a factor of as high as 60%, when compared to traditional precast concrete (Ferry and Parrott, 1999).
