While searching for information on the fiber cement boards I came across the bendable cement. I called the university and the professor sent me the PDF file with all of the specs on it. How can I get and engineer to decipher the information? I need to figure out what the tensile strength of the cement is when it is less than an inch thick. Once I know that, I can compare it to the Fiber Cement board and form a guesstimate of how strong a SIP panel this cement would make. I can use the truss simulator to get an idea of the stresses involved. http://www.jhu.edu/~virtlab/bridge/bridge.htm


When you find out the details, please post them.

The cement is 10,000 psi cement. Much too hard for an inside wall. I have found out that the SIP panels with fiber cement board can be built as big as you the factory allows by stacking boards like bricks in the glue presses. I hope to use some of this product this year.

Cheers
