Abstract
Asbestos is a fibrous material which is widely used in making corrugated cement roofing sheets owing to its desirable
qualities like good strength, flexibility, resistant to heat, chemicals, electricity and water absorption. On the other hand, when
the asbestos dust particles are inhaled they are injurious to health. Thus the usage of asbestos is restricted or even banned in
many countries. In this work, Non-Asbestos corrugated cement roofing sheets was prepared by using Fly ash, used foundry
sand, Bamboo fiber, synthetic poly propylene fiber and Portland cement. The reinforcement materials that were used in this
work are non-toxic, low cost and are easily available. Three samples of non-asbestos corrugated cement sheets namely;
Sample-A, Sample-B and Sample-C were prepared with three different combinations of the reinforcement materials. The
mechanical properties like impact test, water absorption test and bending test was conducted on the prepared sheets. From the
experimental results, sample-C has shown better results when compared to the other samples. Finally, using ANSYS 15.0, the
stress-strain relationship of the sheet was also analyzed by applying a load of 2500N/m. The FEA results revealed a very
nominal amount of displacement, proving very good load bearing capacity of the prepared non-asbestos corrugated
roofingsheets.

Key words: Asbestos fiber, Impact test, Finite Element Analysis, bamboo fiber, Water absorption test
