Flexural Analysis of Rainforced Concrete Precast Curb Stone of Colored Cement

Authors(1) :-Dr. Hamid Abdul Mahdi Faris

In this research, a new design is proposed for the (Curbstone). In this design, the curbstone is hollow from the inside and not a hard stone, as in the old design. The new design has many advantages. The quantities of casting material will be supplied. Water pipes, electric wires and optical cables through which will be dispensed with digging the pavement to pass it and can also drain rain water through the cavity. The Ferro cement was used to make the new pavement stone. Four models were poured and tested using two-toned Ferro-cement, two with small stones, and reinforcing steel was used to increase durability. The results of the examination of the four models showed that they carry more than the old curbstone bearing mentioned in the Iraqi standard.
